YOUR INSTRUCTOR- Aaron
Aaron Smith is the owner instructor of Mandeville Ballroom Dance Studio outside New Orleans, LA. est. 2008.
Although Aaron grew up shying away from dancing and most social gatherings, an opportunity opened up in college for him to begin taking classes. He instantly fell in love with East Coast Swing, a passion that soon grew to include many other social dance styles. Throughout his 15 year dance journey, Aaron couldn't help but share his passion with others, so he created the Swing Dance Club at Southeastern Louisiana University, assisted the local high school dance clubs, and even held a board position on the local chapter of USA Dance.
After graduating college in 2006, Aaron moved back home to Mandeville, began hosting monthly dance parties, and continued his training. All this culminated into Aaron opening his own studio two years later, a venture which has been growing steadily into a warm, welcoming dance community. An avid social dancer, performer, and pro-am competitor, Aaron continues to hone his craft through coaching, workshops and training from nationally and internationally recognized instructors and professional dancers.
