Our Team

Gary de Beer

Co-Founder & CEO

I have been dancing Latin & Ballroom for the past 18 years. I started at the age of 16 had a break between and then decided I cannot go without it.

I am a people’s person and love making someone feel that they can achieve anything in life. Teaching has become part of me and who I am today is partly because of dancing. It tests you in all aspects of life and one thing I have learned is that, dancing is a life experience never stopping.

I co-own Dance Equation Studios. 

I have completed my Teacher’s, Advanced Teacher’s, Junior Master’s, Master’s, Advanced Master’s and Examiners Diplomas in American Standard of Social Ballroom and Latin Exams. I am currently busy with my Post Examiner’s Diploma. I also compete professionally in International Latin American and Ballroom Dancing.
