THE TEAM
Natalie Kelly.jpg

NATALIE K.
Studio Director

Natalie started dancing the day she turned four years old, and hasn't stopped since! She moved to Napa Valley in 2016 and quickly set herself to the task of bringing social dancing to wine country. Her energy, enthusiasm, and joy for all things dance comes across in her lessons, progress checks, and program visits.

Assistant Manager, Instructor & Social Media Coordinator

Victoria spent years exploring and training in various disciplines of body movement and dance and takes great joy in exploring the possibilities (not limits!) of what our bodies can do. You'll often find her infectious laughter brightening up the dance floor as she guides our new students through uniquely tailored dance journeys.

Michael P.
Marketing Director & New Student Instructor

After graduating Santa Clara University with a degree in Marketing, Michael moved to Napa to put his knowledge to the test. He's spent almost 8 years developing digital marketing strategy in the wine industry, and now he's applying his wealth of knowledge right here in the dance world! When he's not working behind the scenes, Mike is an avid proponent of hustle, salsa, and west coast swing on the dance floor!

AYLAN R.
Instructor & Aerial Coach

Aylan's dance journey began years ago in pursuit of a new creative outlet. Before finding ballroom he performed in gymnastics and aerial silks giving him a rich understanding of the body to help his students fly. He quickly desired more from his dancing and trained into instructing. Aylan's time as a gymnast and passion for partnered dance makes him Slow Fox's go-to instructor for all things flashy on the dance floor, and in the air.

NICOLAS Z.
Competitive Instructor

Many years ago in Columbia, Nick discovered his love of dance through merengue, and from there it bloomed. He truly immersed himself into dance after learning salsa, working with top tier coaches and even joining a salsa performance team. Teaching for over a decade now, Nick loves dance because it allows him to connect with music that he loves and be part of it - that feeling of synchronicity between the movement, music, and best of all - a partner. Nick has also studied Argentine Tango for 16 years.
