Steven Adcock began his early dance career as a ballet and jazz performer working with a number of professional companies.
Later, he trained in the competitive style ballroom and latin dances.
After early retirement, Steven wrote Partner Workout, which describes manual resistance exercises that enhance dance sport fitness
and partner sensitivity. The book garnered world-wide acclaim and Steven found himself in much demand as a dance sport conditioning coach
and dance sport bodywork practitioner. Among his clients were principles from all the major ballet companies and world champions
in every ballroom discipline.
He has worked in the film and music industry as a dance and movement coach with stars like Al Pacino, Ringo Star, Bill Macy,
Phylicia Rashad, Leonard Bernstein, Bill Murray, Gwen Verdon, Rita Rudner, Mia Farrow and many more.

Steven resurrected a second dance career 15 years ago when he fell in love with the complexity, passion and power of Argentine Tango.

sensuality to her intellectual prowess, Cheryl has trained in the ballroom dance arts for 12 years. She has competed in both

dance sport practitioner.

Influenced strongly by Miriam and Hugo, Nora Dinzelbacher, and Osvaldo and Lorena, they have also studied with with Nito and Elba,
Fernanda and Guillermo, Carlos Rivarola and Oscar Mandagaran. Steven and Cheryl's combined artistic and academic studies of the
human body as it relates to dance and movement create an extraordinary teaching environment and bequiling performance style.
