Tim Richard  started his dance training at Flint Dance Studio before being accepted to study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. He continued his dance training at the renowned Broadway Dance Center under the tutelage of jazz greats Bob Rizzo and Frank Hatchett. Tim was handpicked by LaToya Jackson to dance on her tour as a featured dancer and soon became her choreographer. He has also performed with Jennifer Lopez, Carmen Electra, Debbie Gibson, Melba Moore, and Martha Wash. He was an original member of the recording group C&C Music Factory who charted numerous hits in the 90's, including Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) and Things That Make You Go Hmm.  He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, The Arsenio Hall Show, and the MTV VMA's among others. He also was featured in 3 national Coca Cola commercials. In 1997, Tim returned to Mishawaka and formed the award-winning competitive dance company New York Dance Connection and served as it's choreographer and director for 10 years.


The competition class, taught by Tim Richard, is structured as a professional class similar to the classes he teaches in New York City. This way, students will understand the demands of a professional dancer. The class will develop and perfect routines to be entered in national dance competitions. For this reason, it is stressed that this group is not for dance enthusiasts looking for a hobby. It takes commitment of time and technique.
