Internationally known as dancer, teacher and choreographer Roy Verdonk shares his passion for dance all over the world, starting at his own dancecentre; The Dutch Dance Academy.
He currently traines line dancers of all levels during group training, privates and bootcamps both abroad and at his own dancecenter Dutch Dance Academy in Oudenbosch (nl). He also teaches lessons in other styles of dancing besides line dance, amongst others the popular style West Coast Swing!
Besides giving training and lessons, he travels the world giving workshops and shows with his "Roy Verdonk Dancers Showteam"; a group of young and inspired dancers!
With more than 15 years of choreographing and winning prestigious awards throughout the dance community, Roy has always stayed down to earth. He is a man that loves his work. Dancing as a passion will always be the great love in his life.
Roy Verdonk was born Febuary 22, 1975 in Hague, Netherlands.
Following a study in sports education and while pursing law at the university, his interest for dancing started to become alive. It all started after seeing "Garth Brooks" live in concert in Holland. It was the amazing music that started the untameable dance fever in him. After searching throughout Hague (Holland) for dance classes , he finally found a country dance club that was called MBC. They were advertising that they were searching for some dancers to go to the Worldchampionships, which were held in the Disneyland hotel in Los Angeles, back in 1997.
After a year of hard work/training they went to Los Angeles and that was the year that Roy Verdonk won the highest worldtitle in the solo category. From that point on, the snowball started to roll faster and faster. His life became itself like a rollercoaster ride. After being on many television shows, he started his own danceschool and began to train students.
As a result, he has trained more than 12 line dance "Stardancers" globally. He has trained more than 100 Worldchampions, produced his own theatre show with Barry Stevens, signed a major contract with a record company, and has worked with some of the biggest artists of Holland. Roy Verdonk can really be called a "Master of the Trade".
With more than 15 years of choreographing and winning prestigious awards throughout the dance community, Roy has always stayed down to earth. He is a man that loves his work.
