Gary DeLeon: ” There is Life Itself to Learn in Dancing”

Gary_SeattleStarBall (1)A longtime social dancer, Gary has been trained to teach under the DVIDA program for Bronze level Smooth & Rhythm. He has competed in the Seattle Star Ball, Columbia Star Ball, and local USA Dance events at the Bronze and Silver levels.

He has participated in Ballroom Dance Camps at BYU (Brigham Young University) multiple times, has choreographed couple and group performances for social events, and himself has performed at numerous dance and social events in the local scene.

Gary recently joined Linda’s team of instructors to pursue higher levels of dancing excellence while developing a dance-oriented life philosophy that he aims to impart to friends and loved ones as he “grows older”. Gary’s goal is for people to see, discover and experience their loving selves in partner dancing.

“There is life itself to learn in dancing…”, Gary says, “… and by the way, I don’t teach people, I only unleash what’s already in them.”
