Mark Read Mark won our hearts during our Caribbean cruise in 2023. He has been dancing and teaching American Smooth and Rhythm for over 20 years. He understood early that teaching dance was a love and a calling. It gives him great joy to share his knowledge and be part of the transformation that occurs when a beginner becomes an accomplished dancer. Mark began training in International Standard and Latin 8 years ago in order to expand his dance and dance teaching vocabulary. Mark’s passion for teaching is well aligned with Eviactive’s passion to dance philosophy. He is certified in American Smooth and Rhythm, International Latin and Standard, as well as Hustle and West Coast Swing.
Steven’s love of movement began on the stage as part of Theatre Beyond Words, a theatre company that took him on tour across North America, Europe and Asia. Yet Ballroom and Latin dance kept pulling him. It was Jennifer Jones, CEO and Dean of Joy of Dance Centre and Teachers College who convinced him that he should pursue his passion. Steve is teaches American smooth and rhythm as well as West Coast Swing and Hustle. Steven received his certification from Canadian DanceSport Federation in American Ballroom Smooth and Rhythm. His love and passion for teaching American Smooth and Rhythm comes from the deep belief that dancing is a fun, liberating and energizing experience that heightens awareness of the body and creates a unique connection between people.
