We Started our dance career back in 1993 dancing & teaching at the east side bar called Super Toad.  Our instructors Dave & Gina Trimble (2001 World Champions ) approached us asked if we would be interested in competing?  Our 1st competition was in 1996 and our last competition was in 2003.  During that time frame we competed at numerous levels of dance competition,  traveled the midwest & southern regions. (1996)  Des Moines, IA, our very 1st competition, it was called Dance days just a honky tonk competition.   (1998) Branson, we won 1st place in 4 dances & overall champions.   (2002) St Louis, 1st place in two dances, 2nd place in three dances & 3rd place in one dance, 2nd place winners overall.   (2003) New Orleans, 1st place in all six dances and 1st place overall.  And in (2003) we won 5th place overall at Worlds in Nashville. 

We were very lucky to have taken private lessons with Vickie Vance Johnson & Kevin Johnson, Kristen Geil & Rex Jones, Jo Thompson, Pedro Machado, Scott Blevins, Max Perry & Kathy Hunyadi along with other professional instructors.  The song Vickie Vance gotta dance by Mark Chesnutt was wrote for Vickie Vance Johnson.
