Barney & Debbie Aquilino have been teaching ballroom dancing for 35 years and have owned Dance Obsession for over 30 years. After only a few short years of dancing together professionally, they won the US Rising Star Ballroom Championships in Foxtrot, Bolero, Swing and Mambo. In the years following that accomplishment, they placed in the top 6 finalists in every professional competition they entered. After their first child, they took a break from competing but returned several years later competing in a new division—International Latin.
They retired from professional competition in 1998 to add another child to their family. During the time that they were competing professionally, Barney & Debbie opened Dance Obsession and continued teaching students. They love dancing and have retained all their professional techniques, which they freely share with their students.
