Jamie started dancing when she was 5 years old. She started with ballet, but because her mom was a ballroom dancer in her childhood, Jamie was introduced to International Latin. She instantly fell in love and was lucky to find a partner almost right away. She went on to receive two national titles and won many other competitions. As the years went by, her passion and love for ballroom dancing only increased. Her family’s support drove her to always do her best.
After doing ballroom and ballet simultaneously for 8 years, Jamie decided to put all her focus into latin. Three years ago, Jamie started dancing with Raphael. Together they worked very hard to improve their technique and performance and went on to win a national title in 2014. Jamie’s love for the sport continues to grow, and she takes any opportunity she can get to influence and teach the next generation of dancers. Teaching kids has always been a passion of hers and she loves to see kids having fun while succeeding.
