Marcus teaches ballroom and Latin dance. He began teaching, performing, and competing at a franchised dance studio in 2008 before moving to California. One of the things he enjoys most about dancing is that there is always something new to learn or do differently. He started teaching American Style Rhythm and Smooth, and has since branched out into International Style Rhythm, Standard Smooth, and a host of other social dances including Blues and Lindy Hop. He is excited to be a part of and offer his talents to the IPAA! “I consider myself a late bloomer, but I have had several amazing coaches over the years and danced with many fabulous partners as well. With good instruction and practice anything is possible, and I like to be great at everything I do! I often just wish there was more time to do it all, but we each have the same twenty-four hours every day to get what we want done. One has to pick a choose wisely.” In those rare moments when he is not dancing, Marcus can usually be found on a tennis court, at a chess board, near a dictionary, in front of a cartoon, drinking orange juice, or telling corny jokes to anyone who will listen. "I have a fairly eclectic skill set. Nothing I do is ordinary.""
