Here at Dance Teacher, we LOVE a talented dance family. Something about parents and siblings passing their passion for dance down to those who come after them just warms our hearts.
While there are many sets of talented siblings across all genres of dance, ballroom seems to be particularly booming with them.
Don’t believe us? Check out these four sets of ballrooms siblings we can’t take our eyes off of. Their parents have raised them right!
This is far from a comprehensive list, so feel free to share your favorite sets of dance siblings over in our comments!
1. Derek and Julianne Hough
We can’t curate a list of dance siblings without including this dynamic duo. From “Dancing with the Stars,” “World of Dance”, international ballroom competitions, national tours and films, Derek and Julianne have entertained the world with their talent for decades. They’re so good, they could have their own ballroom dynasty!
2. The Delgrosso Sisters
It’s impressive to find a family with two talented siblings—let alone six! The Delgrosso sisters trained at Center Stage Performing Arts Studio in Orem, Utah, under the direction of their mother, Kim Delgrosso. Each has succeeded on the competition circuit and taught for their mom at Center Stage, and some have gone on to perform as professionals and guest artists on “Dancing with the Stars” and teach on major national dance conventions/studios across the country.
3. The Castro Siblings
Ballroom firecrackers Ruby, Benjamin and D’Angelo Castro have all trained at their parent’s dance studio, Dance Town, in Miami, Florida. Among the three, they have racked up credits on “America’s Got Talent,” “World of Dance,” “So You Think You Can Dance” and Paula Abdul’s “Live to Dance.”
4. The Arnold Sisters
Lindsay, Jensen, Brynley and Rylee took over televised dance competitions last summer, and we are not mad about it. Lindsay has become a staple professional on “Dancing with the Stars,” Jensen took second on Season 15 of “So You Think You Can Dance,” and Rylee stole hearts on the first-ever season of “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.” Though she hasn’t performed on a national television competition yet, according to her sisters, Brynlee’s future is just as bright. We can’t wait to see what these talented women do next!
