Mark Weber began dancing at the age of 14 in high school when his sister convinced him that there were cute girls in dance classes! However, it wasn't until college that he truly fell in love with ballroom dancing and performing. While pursuing a business degree, Mark would spend several hours each day dancing and rehearsing until he eventually earned a spot in the world-renowned BYU Ballroom Dance Company. Mark's focus at college changed as he improved his dancing abilities. His association with the BYU dance team gave him many opportunities to train with the best of dancers and coaches from around the world as they were brought in for training purposes.
While attending school in 2007, Mark began teaching and developed a passion for helping others learn to dance! From 2008-2009 he was the director of the Youth Formation Team at Charisma Dance Studios in Utah. His love for children and dancing inspired him to help create and run an after school program for elementary school children in Provo, Utah.
Despite the long hours he devoted to dance, outreach programs, and his studies, Mark also had responsibilities with the family goat farm. His strong work ethic proved valuable as he managed to balance such a demanding schedule. He continued to train and actively compete in hundreds of competitions around the United States, winning many titles along the way, and has performed for thousands as part of the BYU Ballroom Company.
In 2012, Mark moved to Nashville, TN to further his career as a professional competitor and instructor. It was here that Mark met Kami Lowe, who would later become his wife! After a few social dances, they began to compete together professionally in the American smooth division.
Mark currently teaches in Nashville at the prestigious Dance World, one of the top ballroom dance studios in the country. His dance clientele range in age from 6 to 82 years old. Mark believes that his students deserve the best in order to reach their goals, and he strives to deliver the best instruction and experience possible! He is known as a positive and patient, yet thorough, instructor. Mark prepares his students for whatever their goals may be - competition, showcase, or simply the love of social dancing!
