Eddie Alba / Board Member 2014 to Present

How are you actively and currently involved in same sex ballroom dance?

I am a former Same Sex competitor and a California State Same Sex Latin Champion. I am currently a NASSPDA member and Adjudicator. I'm also currently working on developing and enlarging the same sex ballroom dancing community in Southern California.

What relevant leadership experience, such as serving on a board of a membership driven or non-profit organization and/or experience in helping to create such an organization, do you have?

I have been in the Ballroom dancing business for 20 years as an instructor, a competitor, choreographer, studio owner and judge. My leadership skills were developed by managing a very large studio for nine years and now I am the managing co-owner of one of the largest studios in Southern California. For the last 5 years, I have been involved with the Assistance League of Newport Mesa, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children in need in the Orange County area organizing a yearly fundraising event modeled after the TV show Dancing with the Stars.
