Don and Carolee McCardle have been in the entertainment business in one facet or another for the last 65 years. Their professional career began doing nightclubs in Ohio and throughout the United States, local television shows such as The Gene Carroll Show and Landmark Jamboree out of Cleveland, Ohio and Don even choreographed for the USO when drafted into the Army. After opening the studio, Don was also a professor adjunct at the University of Akron's dance department for 10 years, taught and judged at conventions and competitions for well-known organizations such as NADA and Dance Masters where he was proudly given the title of "the dance teachers teacher".

After turning over the studio to their daughter, Colleen McCardle-Contillo, in 1999 and a brief retirement, Don returned to the stage for a year as one of the star male dancers in The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies in Palm Springs, California. Now back in Ohio, Don continues to teach a much sought after "Reunion Tap Class" where students return as adults to take off of their beloved teacher from childhood.

Don and Carolee's idea to offer excellent and professional quality dance training is still evident today after 55 years in business.
