Vincent & Felicia Chia started dancing socially in 1988. In their very first competition in 1990, they were crowned Waltz champions. During 1995-1996, they were 4 times South-East-Asia Latin American dance champions.
They started to teach in 1995 and trained students for Latin & Ballroom examinations. The examining boards are the National Association of Teachers of Dancing and United Kingdom Alliance of Teachers of Dancing, both based in London. In 1998, when Country & Western line dancing was just about to boom in Singapore, they hopped on board and are now among the leaders in the industry. In the year 2000, Vincent received his Professional qualifications in Line Dance from NATD. Felicia has since received her Fellow in Line Dance from UKA. To date, they have trained over 60 instructors, helping them gain their Associates in Line Dance from UKA.
Vincent & Felicia's careers went into a new high when they were invited to conduct a workshop at the UKA Centenary Conference at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool in May 2002. Felicia is the very first Singaporean to be invited to teach at such a prestigious international event. She is invited to teach again in 2006.
They scored another first the following year, when they were invited to teach in the United States of America. They became the first Asian Instructors cum Choreographers to teach Line Dance in the USA. They have since, been back every year to different events. They have also been invited to teach in Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Since Line Dancing was a booming industry in Asia, they decided to organize an event for Asians. DanceFuntasia, was held in June 2004, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Over 220 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, Scotland, UK and USA attended the event. The wonderful and incredible success of the event encouraged them to make it an annual affair. The following year, DanceFuntasia was held in Hong Kong, with over 450 participants from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Australia, Taiwan and USA.
In a class of their own, they have proved to the world that they have what it takes to make it on the international Line Dance scene.
When Vincent & Felicia received their Licentiates from UKA for Latin American dance, they decided to take it a step further. Driven by their passion and pursuit for excellence, they set up DanceZone, their own dance studio. With DanceZone, they hope to be able to use their exposure and experience gained from competitions and events, both locally and overseas, to put Singapore on the World's dancing circuit, not only in Ballroom and Latin, but also in Line Dance.
