IBA is proud​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ of its talented and professional staff. Our coaches have vast ballroom experience in performance, coaching, and choreography. ​​


Shawn and Janie both graduated from BYU a long time ago in a valley four hours away. Shawn was a principle dancer for the BYU Ballroom Company (ranked 3rd individually in the U.S. and a team bronze at worlds) and Janie was a clogger with the International Folk Dancers. She converted to ballroom after marriage, a wise choice since the foxtrot is much less taxing than clogging for a person of her age. Together they have served as the National Dance Directors for the National League of Junior Cotillions. Shawn is the Dance Area Coordinator at BYU-Idaho and Janie is adjunct faculty and oversees the student teacher program. Shawn has served as the Sr. Vice President of USA Dance and the editor of American Dancer Magazine.  They are the parents of 7 delightful children, all who dance whether they wanted to or not! (They'll thank us later.)
