Southwest Regional Director / Resident Coach

Raphael Abel

“There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.” This is a quote that ultimately describes Raphael Abel. ‘Ralph’ as he is affectionately called at the studio, began his love of dancing at the tender age of twelve. Like most kids, he was a little hesitant at first, but with a gentle push he discovered an inner passion that would stay with him for eternity. After finishing his degree in accounting and entering the New York City workforce, he realized that something was missing in his life. His whimsical attitude and personality was immediately a hit with the staff and the students at all of the Dance With Me studios. He smoothly dispenses all his knowledge and skill to everyone that crosses his path; building relationships, listening to others and keeping his hands in the mix at all times. Raphael is very excited about the opportunity to bring ballroom dancing to another level in Southlake!

Dance Instructor / Client Experience Coordinator

Brandon Wisner

Growing up in rural Mississippi, dancing was not exactly a popular career field. From a young age, Brandon became known for mimicking Michael Jackson, James Brown, Usher, and many others - often to the disruption of his classes. It wasn’t long before his obsession with copying these “dance greats” had gained him an understanding of dance, in general. Brandon began exploring his own creativity and teaching himself hip hop in high school. He didn’t begin any sort of formal dance training until age 19 when he joined Baton Rouge ballroom studio looking for ways to integrate various styles of dance into hip hop. However, Brandon quickly fell in love with the technique associated with the other styles of dance. It didn’t take long before the studio recognized his natural talent and recruited him as a full-time instructor. Brandon has been teaching Ballroom professionally since 2007 and has choreographed and performed countless routines during that time. He was also nationally ranked as a Top Teacher for 6 years running and he even competed on a season of “So You Think You Can Dance.” With Brandon’s “life of the party” attitude, it usually doesn’t take long for his students to tout him as the highlight of their day. He couldn’t be more excited to further his career and share his passion as Manager of Dance with Me’s Southlake studio.

Kristofer Speer

Which dance is your favorite and why?  Mambo & Bolero, I feel like though Bolero is the most expressive Mambo is crazy fun! What type of music is your favorite to dance to? It depends on my mood, all types must have a depth of character that can captivate the soul. What type of music is your favorite to listen to? I love all music, but I have a special place in my heart for classical and movie scores. What is your favorite movie or TV show? Inception, The Flash. If you could be one animal, which one would you be and why? A winter wolf because they are strategic, intelligent and mysterious. How/Why did you start dancing? I was invited as a guest by my parents. At the party a teacher danced Swing with me, and asked me how long I'd been dancing. When I said never before they decided to put me on a training program. What do you want most out of life? TO CREATE! I am a visual artist, a writer, a dancer and a storyteller. It all goes back to creating a narrative. What do you like most about teaching dance? Expression of information. The chance to captivate and be captivated by the exchange of ideas!   What is your favorite quote? "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination" - Albert Einstein

Moses Williams

Moses’s dance journey did not have a typical beginning, and it’s unconventional nature has had a lasting and positive effect on his development. Moses was not a dancer growing up. He was shy, but he believed that true self-improvement could be found in our most uncomfortable moments. At the age of 12, he started teaching himself how to hip hop dance and, as his skills improved, he started to open up. By age 17, he was studying Computer Science and Philosophy at Southern Methodist University. It was around this time that he was introduced to Ballroom dancing. Ballroom dancing gave Moses everything he needed in life: A sense of purpose that could define his life, a persistence that could never be shaken, and the ability to transform thought into reality. Moses wants to share his passion with as many people as possible, and lead others to follow their dreams as well. His favorite quote: “Running water never grows stale. So you just gotta keep on flowing.”-Bruce Lee
