Our instructors for the Bermuda cruise are among the most popular—and sought after—dance instructors in the United States.
Dan and Silke (pronounced 'Silk-a') have been instructors on our four previous dance cruises and are consistently ranked by our dancers as 'excellent' on our dance surveys. Here's a look at their distinguished background:
The Calloways have enjoyed a long and successful career performing and competing in ballroom dancing, including performing at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. They are Asian-Pacific and United States Professional Ten-Dance Grand Finalists.
Dan has been competing professionally, coaching and judging for thirty-five years, repeatedly earning the distinctions of "Professional of the Year" from numerous dance organizations and "Top Teacher" at many national level events.
Damian Pataluna and Irina Morozova Join Us
Damian Pataluna and Irina Morozova, 2012 and 2013 Amateur USA Dance National 9-Dance Champions, are joining us as instructors on our Bermuda cruise and we are excited to have the reigning champions with us!
Damian, who had won the Amateur American Style 9 Dance Championships in 2006 with another partner, met Irina in 2009 and in April, 2010, they won the Amateur American 9 championship. Since then, they have defended their title at three national events. They also took first place that year in the novice smooth-style, cementing their reputations as among the most versatile competitors.
We think you'll enjoy the teaching and dance styles of this energetic and dynamic couple and that they will be a welcome addition to our instructor staff. You can learn more about them at;
