Eddie is the owner of Dance It Studio, Orlando's Top Ballroom Studio. This native of Puerto Rico, classifies his style and technique as a mix of Latin and Ballroom, even though he was formally trained in ballet and jazz. Prior to moving to the states, Eddie was the 'go to' performer for numerous shows, videos and concerts for several celebrities, including performing in front of sold out crowds with renowned tenor, Andrea Bocelli. He brings that reputation to Central Florida as the choreographer to call on for shows and events.

Eddie has trained with numerous professional ballroom dance coaches in more than 10 countries. He now shares that knowledge with his students who also dance their way into the winners' circles. His students have won national titles, are listed as Pro-Am Rising Stars, and World Pro-Am. 

His unique style and great command of movement come to life not only in his inspiring performances, but also in his gift to teach. Eddie Rivera is a name that you will hear more in the years to come as a premier instructor, choreographer and competitor in the world of ballroom dance.

Fayvin Doucette  began dancing ballet, contemporary, and hip hop at the young age of 4 for several years. Later in life she wanted to add something more to her dancing agenda and decided it was finally time to learn partnered ballroom dancing. She studied to become a top teacher for the companies she worked for and has helped open dance studios locally. She went on to compete professionally to win many titles in the American rhythm category.

OUR PROS AND SHOW FOR 2022

Volodymyr Barabash and Yulia Rudenco


Yulia was born and raised in a dance family. Her parents Elena and Andrei Rudenco owned a dance club “Gratsia” in Moldova where she started dancing at the age of 3. She fell in love with dance and never stopped since then. Yulia was remarkably successful in her early years, dancing amateur divisions in both ballroom and modern dance styles.
Yulia moved to USA in 2008 with her parents and started new career as pro/am dancer with her father Andrei. Yulia is 5 times US National Pro/Am Champion, 4 times World Pro/Am Champion, 5 times 10 Dance Champion.

Later, in adult division Volodymyr turned his focus to the Standard style. He was highly successful competitor becoming Ukrainian National Professional Silver Medalist and representing Ukraine in 2 World Classic Showdance Championships and European Standard Championships.
After being invited to U. S., Volodymyr started to explore American styles and fell in love with American Smooth as a perfect combination of Standard and Latin. Looking for a professional partner, he was super lucky to meet Yulia who was also looking for a partner in the same area.
