About Us


Dance Your Freedom Studios is a dance studio that provides a unique approach to dancing, focusing on skills, pressure matching, and partnership. Our aim is to help people work as a team, learn how to communicate with each other, and connect with their partner on a deeper level.

Dance Your Freedom Studios has helped thousands of people improve their dancing skills and achieve results they never thought possible. In just five to ten minutes, we guarantee that people will be plugged-in and working at a level they've never imagined. Our approach is not based on counting, choreography, or head-based learning. Instead, we focus on having conversations with our partner, paying attention to their needs, and taking care of them.


Lead Coach

Jay Holman is a natural born dancer, musician and teacher. A true artist, he feels the rhythm and pulse in every song and is passionate about inspiring others to do the same.

Over the past 16+ years Jay has specialized in two styles of dance: Blues and West Coast Swing and is passionate about teaching Wedding Lessons. He also continues to cross train in Tai Chi, Pilates, Hip Hop, Tango, Salsa, East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop and much more. With 16+ years of teaching dance under his belt, and 20 years teaching music. Jay is very ambitious to build a dance community that will continue to grow for years to come. His comprehensive teaching style is one that focuses on the understanding of true partnership and connection. Memorizing footwork and patterns is not Jay’s way.

In educating students on how to ‘feel’ the music and the dance, opposed to counting out steps, they will acquire technique in an enjoyable and rewarding way. Jay continues to travel and train; always striving to bring the latest styles and trends back to Victoria, BC. Jay understands the significance of keeping things current and fresh!

We offer a schedule of bi-monthly workshops and private lessons for all levels of dancer in a variety of styles.  (Check out the full list on our service page). Bottom line: if it takes two... it's something we do! 🙂
