fter watching the first season of So You Think You Can Dance, Colby caught Ballroom fever. Although he began dancing in his teenage years, his ballroom training began at Stony Brook University with coach Giny Rae. He quickly became enamored with International Latin, but trained in all styles. He competed on the collegiate circuit, and even placed first in Latin against over 80 couples at the Big Apple Dancesport Challenge, hosted by Columbia University.
Colby began his professional career in 2012, teaching in Vero Beach, FL. However, after moving back to Orlando in 2013, Dance It Studio quickly became his home. Colby has performed for several events around Orlando, and has even performed for Gloria Estefan at her restaurant, Bongos, in Disney Springs.
Colby has trained with Pasha and Daniella Pashkov, Kasia Kozak, Michael Chapman, Felipe Telona, and many more. He uses his knowledge and experience to help students achieve their goals on and off the dance floor.
