OUR DANCE INSTRUCTORS
MEET THE TEAM
THE ENIGMATIC FRONTMAN
For Move With Me Owner Ryan Herbert,
dancing was a late in life discovery. Whilst studying Psychology (UWS) & attaining full certification as a Personal Trainer (ACPE), he also decided to broaden his skillset and take up ballroom dancing. After completing his studies, Ryan received an employment opportunity at one of the most widely recognised international ballroom dance franchises. He was given the opportunity to teach hundreds of people, ranging in difficulty level and dance styles. Ryan was able to perform, compete and train with industry legends. It was here that he found his own niche as an instructor, combining humour and precision to help make dance more accessible.
“MWM allows me to combine all my acquired skillsets into one captivating dance experience”.
