About John Ross

John Ross began dancing at the age of 16, finding it a healthy way to celebrate life during challenging times.

After finishing college, he began training to teach dance. By this time, he had performed with Buddy Schwimmer’s Northern California dance team and had studied with the top competitors in Europe and America. He received his teaching medals and taught his first class in 1982.
John is an ordained interfaith minister, certified massage therapist, and spiritual counselor, which, when combined with his decades of dance experience, results in a well-rounded, all-inclusive unique experience for his students.

John also pairs with students competing at all levels of Smooth and Rhythm in regional Pro-Am competitions.
