Born and raised in Bakersfield, Josh Harless has always had a heart for helping people. He has been a counselor for drug addiction and a mentor at the Mission of Kern County. It is when Josh found his love for dance that he found his true calling of how to help people. Josh believes that anyone can dance. The only limitations are the limits we place on ourselves. Dance is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and push you to be that better version of yourself.
Josh is GSDTA (Golden State Dance Teachers Association) certified in numerous dance styles. This certification required several hundred hours of training, written tests, and physical demonstration of the dances. Josh is trained to teach in a variety of partner dances, however his true love is with West Coast Swing. Josh competes, teaches, and judges West Coast Swing at many national dance conventions. Josh is currently the Ballroom Dance Instructor for the Bakersfield Smooth Dancers.
Hustle Diva at your service. Hustle is my favorite dance, but I do like it all. I have been dancing for 20 years. My first dance was Lindy Hop. I joined all of the social dance clubs at Cal Poly and learned everything from swing to ballroom to salsa. Need a dance choreographed for a wedding or special event, let me know. See you at the Dance Classes and Social Dances. I can't wait to meet you.
