Dale and Veronica Taylor have recently joined our staff, and we’re very pleased to have them! Veronica got started teaching line and country dance before moving on to coach and choreograph couples’ competition dancers – doing dance workshops at many of the competitions. Dale competed through Arthur Murray for a couple of years before meeting Veronica and teaming up with her to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced couple classes at a local college. Dale introduced Veronica to cued ballroom on one of their first dates, and it was love at first sight! She was pretty fond of Dale, too… They’ve been dancing and teaching together for more than 15 years. They are members of Roundalab (National Round Dance teachers organization) and NCRDTA (Northern California Round Dance Teachers Association).
