Aimée Mendez has been a full-time partner dance teacher, competitor, and performer for over 20 years. She started her competitive career in the Professional American Rhythm category, competing in Texas, and throughout the United States.

Her subsequent focus on Pro-Am competition has been met with much success: She was the teacher of DanceSport's 2002 Top Male Bronze Student of the Year and the 2005 Top Male Newcomer at the prestigious Ohio Star Ball, televised as America's Ballroom Challenge, among other accolades.

In 2009, Aimée coached Jake Pavelka of ABC’s The Bachelor prior to filming the show. His interest in dancing was recognized, and he was invited to compete the highly coveted Dancing with the Stars show, one of the most popular dance shows in recent history. Aimée enjoyed a front row seat at the show during Season 10 when Jake invited her as his special guest.

Aimée teaches beginning to advanced students of any age, and takes a particular interest in sharing her love of dance with couples that want to add a spark to their marriage by including the hobby of partnership dancing, either socially or competitively. In December 2011 Aimée helped a couple realize a bucket list dream of traveling to Vienna, Austria and attending The Imperial Ball; she has a great passion for helping a couple connect through dancing and making dance dreams come true!

As an Instructor at Studio 22, Aimée specializes in working with wedding couples, helping them to feel comfortable and prepared for their first dances.
