Romney Reyes is a Professional Dancesport Competitor, Instructor and Choreographer that began his career in 2000. During that time Romney has experienced success in winning a variety of Professional Rising Star Championships and being a Professional Rising Star finalist at major events such as Emerald Ball, United States Dance Championships and Ohio Star Ball.
In addition, his students, from Newcomer to Advanced, have experienced a great amount of dance success, winning Top Student awards & a variety of Championships.
For Romney, dancing is an activity that appeals to so many because it engages the body, mind, heart, & soul. He believes that the ability to dance exists within all of us, waiting to be liberated at any age or stage of life. This belief is attributed to his experience. While some dancers discover their talent for dance at an early age, Romney began developing his abilities later, as an adult. Since then he has continued to study, train and condition to develop his craft, believing that no matter how great you are you can always be better.
To influence his dance, Romney enjoys drawing inspiration from other forms of art by spending hours in Art Museums, attending Stage Shows, and watching Films that tell great stories. He believes that exposure to varying art forms allows him to approach dance with more creativity.
Currently, Romney, along with his wife Brooke Reyes, professionally compete & perform. Through dance, they enjoy telling their story using a style that is Athletic, Artistic, and Authentic.
