An incredibly versatile dancer and world-class instructor, Ari is well-known for both his fun, energetic, and delightful classes that can't help but inspire students with a love and passion for dance, and for his clear, articulate teaching style that can take even the most complex steps and concepts and make them easy, understandable, and fun to do on the social dance floor. Ari has been teaching and performing nationally and internationally for over 25 years; is the director and co-founder of Waltz Week in Vienna, Harrison Hot Springs Dance & Spa Retreat, Mexico Dance Week, Waltz Fest NW, Heart-Sound Fusion, Hawaii Dance Adventure, and The New Zealand Dance Adventure; and is one of this country's leading innovators and instructors in the areas of lead and follow social-partner dance. When not dancing, Ari is a physician on faculty with Singularity University's Exponential Medicine, and is a pioneer in the burgeoning field of Experiential Wellness Medicine which, among other things, uses dance movement, technique, and connection as a modality for diagnosing and treating patients, and for bringing balance, wellness, joy, and intention to one life.
