About Forrest Vance

Vance’s mother was a waitress at a nightclub was the person who gave him an early introduction to music and dance. In early adulthood he went on to attend college on a math scholarship where he studied special education, but this life was not his future. Eventually his life’s path would take over and he would never use his college education to teach special education in schools.
Vance’s life changed in 1978 when he joined a dance studio where he soon became one of the top dancers in Baltimore. A year later he found himself in Oklahoma City as a professional ballroom dance teacher and winning top and highly regarded awards that he would continue winning for seven years.
