"Results come from a high level of dedication; ballroom dance is a beautiful discipline."
Born in Gallarate, Italy, Giacomo started dancing in 1987 to “meet girls and please his mom.” A good move as he ultimately met his now-bride, Debra, through ballroom dancing.
Working from a beginner, through the ranks of amateur, into the levels of professional and pro-am categories, Giacomo’s international career spans all levels of Ballroom Dance with successful results across the board. To name a few:
- » Multiple pro-am champion titles across all age divisions
