Billy is an accomplished business owner, family man, friend, and professional ballroom dancer. For over 35 years Billy has participated in some form of dancing whether it be as an instructor, a competitor, in social environments, or as a judge with various establishments; his resume is like a novel, the chapters filled with varied adventures, lessons learned, and memories he will cherish forever. For the past 21 years Billy Jones has been fortunate enough to own/operate a dance studio, opening Billy Jones Dance Starz six years ago. Dance Starz celebrates it's seventh season this year and Billy is excited to continue his mission in helping people discover dance, deliver quality instruction, and give memories that will last a lifetime to all his students and staff!
Billy was among the top competitors in the world, at his peak, Mr. Jones ranked 4th in the US in American Rhythm dancing and is a proud member of the NDCA. One of the many blessings Billy has had, is the ability to travel the world. Dance has given him the opportunity to share his wisdom, and expertise through teaching and with performances and giving back on the art that has brought him such happiness in his life. In 2016 Billy was a honored guest in the country of Cuba, teaching American Salsa.
A few of the people Billy has worked with, be it as an instructor or as a performer includes: Mr. President Bill Clinton, Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Mr. Marky Post, acclaimed Tony winner Carol Burnet, Arizona’s own Secretary of State Michele Regan, Linda Pope and many more.
Finally beyond #Dance, Billy has a true passion for people, and his heart has led him into many ventures with varied organizations, and charities. In 2015, he worked with the CEO of Arizona Children's Association, #AZCA, Denise Ensdorff on a yearly event titled, Dancing for Arizona’s Children! Now in it's third season, this benefit has collected nearly $500,000 for the foster children for Arizona Children’s Association.
