Andrew Nolo  &
Šarlote Jakse

We started our journey together in 2017, forming an instant connection with each other through our passion for DanceSport. We are full time Professional DanceSport competitors and teachers specialising in teaching - Standard, Latin and New Vogue for beginners through to advanced, in a studio in Melbourne's Bayside area - Ritz Ballroom.

Since forming our partnership we have won many competitions in Victoria, interstate and overseas, including: Victorian State, Crown International, ADS Southern Cross, Geelong Classic, Luna Park, ADS Premier DanceSport Championships, as well as consistently placing top 3 in Australia and 20th in world Amateur Rising Star at Blackpool Dance Festival.

The expression in a creative space is the reason we dance. Competing is our love, however the creative nature of dance is our "why" for performing. Inspiring others through the avenues of performance and teaching, at the highest standard is how we would like to leave our mark on this beautiful art form of dance.

from our clients

“For our daughter to have the regular opportunity to be taught by Sarlote and Nolo is an incredible privilege. She is so fortunate. The world class ballroom couple are currently at the top of their game on the state, national and global ballroom circuit and teach with utter professionalism and excellence. They are incredibly passionate about their craft and in their hands our daughter has rapidly come from a compete beginner to a confident juvenile competitor. They have incredible communication skills to ensure children work hard and be the best they can be without making them feel pressured or stressed. They always make private and group classes uplifting and fun. If you get the chance for your child to be taught by Sarlote and Nolo take it. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

"I have been learning of Šarlote and Nolo for the past 3 years and I have loved every bit of it. They create such a positive and supportive environment for all their students and provide us with top-quality knowledge on technique, musicality, rhythm, and movement . I always come back with so much new knowledge after a lesson, and they never fail to put me in a fantastic mood! Being able to learn off Šarlote and Nolo is truly such a blessing, and I could not recommend them highly enough"!

"Sarlote and Nolo are amazing! They have a really good way of teaching - it is very kind, but you learn a lot. They teach us technique - each lesson they focus on one thing until you are really good at it. It means a lot to me to have them as my coaches!”
