Spotlight Ballroom has assembled instructors who specialize in all varieties of dancing.  You can meet our instructors online by checking out their biographies, but we would love to meet with you in person.  Any of our instructors are available for a free half hour private lesson consultation to discuss private lesson and class options to get you started on your path to being a great dancer.

Brent Bianchini danced his first Ballroom steps in 2006 and hasn't looked back since. Later in 2006, he began his professional career and from 2007-2008 spent his time competing. After a year on the professional circuit, Brent decided to come back home and teach full time and pursue a career in acting. In 2012, Brent was blessed to make his professional acting debut locally for the Sacramento Theater Company and has enjoyed doing professional acting work since.


Brent has been fortunate to experience some of the best performing arts California has to offer and feels much responsibility to apply that in his instruction. It goes far beyond dance steps for him. The ability to connect with his students and inspire them to have an enjoyable and challenging dancing experience is Brent's driving motivation.
