The QuickSteps Team are here to help you learn to dance. But we know it’s not all about the dancing.
Over the years Michelle has witnessed first hand the happiness that dancing can bring into peoples lives. It can improve your health and fitness, stress levels, social life, self confidence, relationships – all while giving you an amazing sense of satisfaction and achievement.
This is why we do what we do, and the reason for our mission: "create happiness through dance"
Michelle quickly realised that in order to truly deliver the QuickSteps mission, extra teachers were needed to join the Team. Today you’ll find some of the world’s best dance teachers on the QuickSteps team and there are more to come.
You don’t need any experience, you don’t need a partner and you don’t even need to know which styles you want to learn. All you have to do is decide that dancing is for you and let us do the rest!

Kris' favourite things to do are socialising and having a boogie - so she's delighted to do both while serving a cheeky drink at the Quicksteps bar. Outside of work she's at the beach, doing lots of activities (volleyball, pole dancing and running to name a few), and hiking in the Adelaide hills - bring it on Mt Lofty!
I am from Cebu in the Philippines. I started dancing Hip-hop and other dancing genres when I was still in my mother's womb, but I started dancing Ballroom and Latin dancing at the age of 11. At present, I’m a Dance teacher here at Quicksteps and an amateur competitor here in South Australia. I love sharing my knowledge of dancing and this is my passion. When I’m not dancing I enjoy staying at home, watching movies, going to the gym, and playing games on my mobile phone.
Gabby has studied dance and theatre arts in the Philippines and has been dancing since childhood. She remembered her first time choreographing a whole dance was at the age of 12. She is currently an Amateur Latin Ballroom competitor and has competed in the Philippines and Australia. She recently moved in Australia and she’s delighted to be teaching in QuickSteps and spread her passion in dancing and teaching. When she’s not working she’s singing, travelling and competing, making costumes, and going to the gym.
Italian, handsome, funny and modest. When he is not dancing he is probably training in the gym or inline skating! He is vegan and loves food and people that feed him! Francesco started dancing street Latin when he was 19 and this passion for dancing and teaching brought him here, what luck! Other things he loves: music(all sorts), board and computer games, books!

Barman, Nerd, Romantic. When not making you feel as comfortable as possible at the Front of House, Nick spends most of his time boring you with animal facts and attempting to poorly replicate the dances seen on the studio floor.
Caitlin has been dancing pretty much all her life with a focus on ballroom and latin dancing in the last 5 years. She loves social dancing, performing and hopefully one day competing. She has previous teaching and performing experience in a variety of styles including pole dance and burlesque. When she's not at the studio she enjoys reading and sewing.
Hi my name is Winston, from the eskimo state of Minnesota U.S. I have 13 years experience in partnership dancing including, teaching, choreography and competition. Teaching is my passion! On my days off I enjoy exploring Adelaide and eating Sushi.
I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Philippines. I started dancing modern dance, folk dance and Hawaiian when I was 5-14 years old. When I turned 15 years old I joined another genre of dance which is DanceSport, I won several competitions both national and international up to now. My partner is also a teacher here in QuickSteps his name is Kevin. We are one of the top couples of the Philippines in DanceSport in the category of Latin. We are planning to continue our journey here in Australia by teaching, as well as continuing our international dancing which is DanceSport. My recreation and leisure when I have my day off is just dancing, I feel weak when I can't dance a single day. It's like my happy pill and an energiser to make my day productive.
I began dancing and competing in Ballroom and Latin when I was 13 years old back in the Philippines. In the Philippines I have been teaching for almost 9 years now and I am so happy that I get to continue my teaching at QuickSteps. I consider myself to have one of the best jobs in the world. My future goal is to become a professional DanceSport competitor/teacher and compete here in Australia and around the world. I can't wait...
Adam is here to sweep you off your feet at the next QS Social event/Gala Ball. Adam started dancing when he was only 14 and loves Swing/Jive the most. When he's not dancing he can be found out and about with his camera and his friends.
Two of Ben's greatest passions are dancing, and training and developing people; the studio manager role allows him to combine those two nicely. He's been active in the small business community for years now, and likes to have a wide range of knowledge of skills. His other passions are board games, console games, miniatures, whisky, and personal development.
Michelle (or Mish) grew up playing lots of sports but once she found ballroom/latin dancing she was hooked! After teaching for 13 years she has now moved into the dual role of Dance Advisor and Teacher Trainer. Michelle is passionate about 'Creating Happiness through Dance and helping new members set up the perfect program to help them achieve their fitness, fun and friendship goals. When Mish isn't at the studio she is walking her dog Louis, listening to business podcasts or at the pub with friends.
