In ballroom dance, Mr. Jason Barnes is certified in American Smooth & Rhythm as a dancer & teacher.  He is also a choreographer, MC, coach, judge, DJ, and performer, who has won over 350 titles over his 18 year dance career.  Along with a West Coast Swing, U.S. Open Team title, and the 2-Step Across America National Championship, Mr. Barnes has earned many Top Teacher awards.

Jason is tall.  He’s not the most politically correct teacher in the business, but that is one of the many things that make him unique.  “Students come to classes to learn something.  I want to make sure we all have fun at the same time.  My classes are not like a lecture in college.”  He encourages group interaction with back and forth communication in his workshops.  “Never be afraid to ask me a question or tell me a joke.”
