Yes,

Radomir Pashev. Both he and his students place well. He teaches out of Paragon.

Forrest Vance of Ambiant Studios in Scottsdale.

Radomir is taller and competes more. Forrest runs comps in the valley and is a little more tender.

Those are the ones I know for sure as turning out good competitors.

In addition there is also Decho Kraeve who teaches out of Starlight Studios. He places well in comps with his professional partner. I don't know what kind of teacher he is.

Good luck!

Belle

No worries :~}

Latin coaches are harder to find in the US. Good ones are even harder. It's lucky to be in the Phoenix Metro, because we actually have some.

I think they are difficult to come by because most American instructors and dancers prefer rhythm to latin.

terence,

I don't know. I could tell you for sure where they aren't teaching. If they were with a franchise I wouldn't know since my circle travels these days with indy studios.

There have been a lot of shake-ups in the Phoenix Market with studios closing overnight and I've seen a lot of pros moving to one or two of the oldest studios like Paragon. I've also seen them teaching out of their own houses when their studio suddenly vanishes. So it could be they teach out of their home.

Even the chain studios are losing locations out here.

I'll keep my eyes open and if I see the I'll tell you :~}

I would also recommend Yavor Genev at Paragon. He is an amazing dancer, and constantly wins at competition.

can't disagree about Yavor, rather a flirt but he's cute and a fairly good dancer. Not as good as many of the others listed here but also fairly good natured and low key which isn't universally true of this list of dancers :~}
