Who We Are

Experienced Individuals with a Passion for Educating

Owned and operated by true world-renowned Ballroom dancers, WDSF World Championship Finalists, 3-time U.S. National Vice-Champions, and Professional Finalists of GOC, the most prestigious championship in the world, DSS Ballroom Dance School is one of the most unique places to learn authentic Ballroom Dancing from the very best.

Igor Golovach and Michelle-Angela Blank bring together the best of the industry in building a solid band of dancers here in the United States. Their passion for dance has led them worldwide to partake in competitions and finally pass on their love to other generations by opening their first DSS location in Medford, NJ, in 2015.

To educate students, Igor and Michelle have developed The Art of DanceSport Training System, which provides specific standards to enhance dancers’ training and performance processes, allowing them to prosper with a proper system of advancement. It is a structure of education and counseling, depicting athletes and dancers’ interests first through a series of evaluations and specific educational instruction.
