Meet The Director

Career dancer and teacher J.Patrick Clements started competitive ballroom dancing in the Cincinnati Ohio area and has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Europe competing as an amateur and professional ballroom dancer in International Latin and ten-dance categories.  

Now an authority in the industry with almost 25 years experience, he now enjoys performing and competing with his students, as well as introducing new people to the joys of social and competitive dancing.  

He is an incessant student of dance, and counts himself very fortunate over the years to have had the experiences and opportunities to travel the globe and perform and teach among the best talents in the world.

Having acquired ownership of the historical Step-N-Out Dance Studio in 2013, and now spearheading the Midwest Ballroom & Dancesport Club, Patrick is excited to continue his strong reputation of dance excellence in the Greater Cincinnati community.
