About My Business:


Scott Lappin has called the ballroom world "Home" for over 30 years. Over that time he has maintained a high standard of teaching and performance excellence that has earned him the reputation of being one of the most respected and trusted dance instructors on the Gold Coast. For his accomplishments he has been presented Top Teacher awards from some of the most prestigious events in the business and for 12 out of the last 15 years has received the coveted Top Teacher award from the United States Pro-Am Ballroom Dance Championships (USPABDC). Although he has retired from the professional competitive circuit he continues to groom select students to national level standards. His clients have received Top Student awards at such events as the highly televised Ohio Star Ball, the prestigious United States DanceSport Championships and the USPABDC. Continually honing his craft, Scott enhances his teaching through his many pursuits in the movement and healing arts such as the Alexander Technique, Yoga and accumulated studies of various dance styles including Ballet, Jazz, Modern, ethnic, Middle Eastern, aerobics, and Funk. As a “movement technician” Scott helps his students gain a deep and meaningful understanding of the foundational components of easy and graceful dancing. His accumulated teaching and performing experience is invaluable when it comes to introducing personalized material and guiding his students comfortably into new arenas of fun and development. Scott’s Moving Edge Workshop is a lively and fully engaging experience. Broken into three distinct sections: Rhythmic Isolations, Intuitive Body Sensuality and Partnering Magic, participants improvise in powerful movement exercises that help break through old body/mind patterns and allow greater access to self confident, spontaneous, creative and authentic expression. For more information go to While his professional foundation lies in the Ballroom Arts, Scott has enjoyed a parallel career as a popular emcee in the South Florida area. His consummate showmanship, razor-sharp wit and motivational charm makes for a truly memorable function. Currently he instructs independently, under the studio name Dance for Life, in various studios in the South Palm Beach and North Broward areas. He is co-organizer of a 2-day ballroom competition, Magnolia DanceSport Challenge, held every November in New Orleans. Scott earned his B.A. in Music and Musical Performance, with a minor in Psychology, at Macalester College in St Paul, MN.
