James Repetti


Huge thank you to James Repetti! James Repetti began dancing as a child and has competed in and teaches Latin, Rhythm, Standard, and Smooth. In 2015 he became the United States National Vice Champion in American Rhythm and has since focused primarily on his teaching. With over a decade of teaching experience and involvement in the collegiate circuit, James serves as the coach of all four styles for both Stony Brook and Hofstra University’s Ballroom Dance Teams and also privately coaches individual couples from across the country. His students have gone on to compete professionally, as well as to become national champions in their respective styles and levels. James is sponsoring cash scholarships to the overall winners for both Bronze and Silver in Latin and Rhythm, hoping to reward and inspire the growth of the future generation of Open level collegiate dancers.
