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!
After being inspired by dancers in a Ricky Martin video clip, Eamonn went on to compete in Latin, ballroom and New Vogue competitions within New Zealand and Australia. He fell into a teaching job shortly after moving to Melbourne and has been terrorising dance students ever since.
I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Philippines. I started dancing modern dance, folk dance and Hawaiian when I was 5-14years 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...
