Sidestep is very happy to have Brandon DeLong as our Casting Choreographer!
Brandon is a native Texan who was introduced to dancing by his family, but actively refused to enjoy it as he struggled to learn. He eventually fell in love with dance after taking lessons. This unique perspective encouraged him to become a teacher to help people like himself - people who wanted to challenge themselves to be better dancers, but needed a helping hand.
He is the three-year consecutive winner “Top Teacher” for the Alamo City Classic Ballroom Dance Competition. He also won San Antonio’s largest ballroom dance competition, Alamo City Classic Showdance Showdown four times for Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Foxtrot.
When he's not teaching, he performs in all types of events, shows, and competitions. His real passion is the excitement of seeing his students display their progress on the competition floor.
