Who We Are
Studio Owner/Dance Instructor/Performer/Choreographer
Colleen started dancing ballroom, latin and swing in 2005. What started as a hobby grew into a deep passion and desire to teach others. In 2011, she decided to leave her career as a molecular biologist and become a full-time instructor and professional dancer. Colleen now seeks to help others find greater fulfillment in life through dance. She founded Concierge Ballroom LLC in February of 2017 to make partner-dancing more accessible and approachable to Philadelphia and its surrounding areas.
Tomas’ love of dance is rooted in his love of music. As a trained clarinetist and vocalist for over 20 years, music soon gave way to movement and a desire to explore the connection between the two. After studying ballet, modern, jazz, and Afro-Cuban dance, Tomas began training in ballroom styles and was immediately drawn to the history, tradition, and application of partnered dancing. Since finding a professional dance partner in Colleen in 2012, he strives to enrich the lives of others through the culture of dance.
