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 :~}

Bob Powers & Julia Gorchakova are in Scottsdale.(619) 631-1880

Inna Berlizyeva is at Empire Dancesport Scottsdale.

Chad Lakridis teaches at several locations.(602) 549-1916

I recomend Chad he is a great teacher endless engery. He also uses Bob,Juila,and Inna for coaching for him self and his students.

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 :~}
