KELLY “RYAN” WHITE

Kelly “Ryan” White was born in Hendersonville, TN. His mom and dad were avid social dancers growing up with influences such as “Soul Train”, “Jitterbug” and “Swing”. He started learning how to dance by standing on his mother’s feet in the kitchen as she cooked dinners. At age 8, he began taking swing and hustle classes at Arthur Murray under Bill Sparks guidance. The seed of his desire to dance and be an instructor was planted and his journey had just began. The cornerstone of music and dance led him to join the elementary school band in 6th grade and continued all the way through high school. As a teenager, Ryan transitioned his focus from ballroom dance to a more contemporary free style. In 1998, Ryan moved to Florida and started a new journey. Alongside music and dance was the dream of owning his own restaurant and lounge. An adventure that would consume the next 17 years of his life. While achieving his dream of owning a restaurant, music and dance faded. In 2015, he was robbed, shot and beaten leaving his restaurant one night. Surviving that, life offered him a new lease. Ryan met Martin and Noelia in spring of 2018 trying to sell them marketing packages. The energy and feel of the studio rekindled his flame and desire to dance and instruct. Expressing his dream to be a dance instructor was taken as a sales tactic. What a surprise! Later that year, Ryan achieved all 1st place medals at his first competitive dance competition. Also, in December of 2019, he passed his DiVida certification with honors to become a “certified” professional ballroom dance instructor in American Standard and Rhythm styles. Ryan truly believes that, ” It’s never too late to achieve your dreams!”.
