"Ben Castellano. Not sure what that means means but I’m sure it must be something like: “Super dance man killing machine”. Seriously I remember 25 years ago training this young guy on the intricacies of the dance, the dance business, and the dance of life. Ben is, and always was the very best student a teacher could have. This is only part of what has made him a Master in such a short period of time. It wasn’t long after our initial sessions that I called on him to begin to mentor and train my staff. I can’t think of anyone better to place your trust, confidence, and dance future in than my friend Benjamin Castellano."

"Dance lessons from Ben are truly fantastic!! He is an excellent teacher and extremely knowledgeable about the dance industry. I was looking to develop my skills in American Rhythm dancing (Cha cha, rumba, swing, etc.) and participate in pro/am competitions. Ben was able to help me excel in this and reach my goals! Not only is he a professional and technical teacher, he is very passionate in his work and knows how to bring extra fun into his lessons with students. I loved learning from Ben! I only wish I didn't move out of state, otherwise I would still be one of his happy students!"

"I met Ben Castellano in 2005 and took the long journey on how to learn the art of dance with him. He was, and still is an exceptional and patient teacher, who does not give up on you. He truly masterminds laughter and teaching and before you know it, you are doing amazing things you didn't know you can do. We traveled all over the world together and did outstanding competitions, and met the nicest people in this beautiful world of dance. Dancing with him has definitely changed my life forever"

"I was lucky enough to be paired with Ben when I competed in Tampa Bay’s Dancing with the Stars 2017. Despite having no background in ballroom, Ben made me feel super comfortable (read: not like I had two left feet) during our lessons & helped me shine when we competed on stage. He is the perfect mix of funny, patient, creative & professional. He pushed me to challenge myself and did a beautiful job choreographing our routine in a way that highlighted my natural abilities, skill set and our partnering skills. I could not recommend him more highly as an instructor and as an all around great human being. Thank you Ben for not only bringing me a love & passion for dance, but a mirrorball trophy as “Grand Champions” of Tampa Bay’s DWTS 2017!"
