Glenn and Lezlie Yata are championship qualified adjudicators in International Standard and Latin dancing as well as in American Style Smooth and Rhythm. They were qualified by the United States Terpsichore Association and are currently registered with the National Dance Council of America which is the main governing body in the United States.

As youngsters, both Glenn and Lezlie were musically inclined, studied music in school and both performed in bands. Jazz and ballet training helped with their mind and body coordination.

In the early years, Glenn and Lezlie Yata started out as Freestyle. Rock, and Hustle dancers. During the same period in time, the American Style Smooth and Rhythm dances became part of their repertoire. Their unquenchable thirst for knowledge eventually led them to study International Ballroom and Latin styles of dance. Glenn and Lezlie's perseverance and hard work have earned them many prestigious titles such as the Western Region United States Professional Ballroom Champions and Finalists in the United States Professional Ballroom Championships. Their biggest accomplishment however, is having two wonderful children.

These are some of the coaches that guided them through their competitive years.

John Morton - Los Angeles, CA USA (Glenn and Lezlie's first coach)

Brian and Kristi McDonald - British and World Finalists - Scotland

Michael and Vicky Barr - World and British Champions - England

Kenny and Marion Welsh - British and World Finalists - England

Hans and Anne Laxholm - British and World Finalists - Denmark

Stephen and Lindsey Hillier - World and British Champions - England

'These dance champions are the backbone of ballroom dancing as you see it today. We will always have a special place in our hearts for these great people.'

To further the art of Dancesport, Glenn and Lezlie have dedicated their lives to teaching and coaching amateur and professional dancers to feel the richness and rewards that music and dancing has to offer.
