His Career

While attending Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Vanderzell spent his evenings teaching while going to school full-time. He eventually decided to leave school and focus on his passion: ballroom dancing. It was from within the classroom that he discovered competitive dancing, which appealed to him as a former athlete. He spent the next six years undergoing the rigorous physical and psychological demands needed to become one the best dance instructors and coaches in the country. He, along with a partner, collected many titles including Eastern United States Champion, New England Champion, Virginia state champion, and Ohio Star Ball Rising Star Champion. In 1986, Vanderzell moved to California to work in television, movies, and serve in a consulting position for six studios (with the added benefit of being close to his favorite coaches).
