Dance World Mourns Passing of Ron Montez

The dance world is in mourning today following the death of US Icon, Ron Montez. We all got the news late Sunday Jan. 24th. Ron had been in hospital for many days following his diagnosis with Covid 19. Despite reports that his condition was improving, there a was a sudden relapse yesterday from which he did not recover.

Few dancers from the USA achieved the fame and respect awarded to Ron Montez. With Liz Curtis, he was 7 times US Professional Latin Champion 1979-85 and also a finalist in all major events around the world including the World Championships and Open British Championships.

Ron and Liz were icons of the US Dance World and even while still competing themselves, were responsible for training so many of the USA’s younger professional and amateur partnerships, many who themselves went on to become national champions. This of course, only increased once they personally retired from the competitive field.

Ron personally achieved national fame beyond our immediate dance circle as the long-time co-host of PBS Championship Ballroom Dancing, working most notably with Juliet Prowse. He and Liz were also early grand finalists of the talent show “Star Search” one of the most popular shows of the time.

Ron & Liz’s duel shows with World Champions, Donnie Burns MBE & Gaynor Fairweather MBE were legendary and seen all around the world. Ron was also an original member of “Mambo Mania” with Bob Medeiros, Sam Sodano and Terry Leone.

So many people have personal stories about Ron, myself included, but I would like to just mention one and it is my very first memory of him. I was still living in the UK, the year would have been somewhere in the mid to late 1970’s. I had just arrived at the Grafton Ballroom in South London for one of their world famous practice sessions. The floor was empty except for one couple practicing Latin. I did not know who they were, but was mesmerized by their slick, yet authentic dancing. That couple was Ron & Carol Montez. Even after all the wonderful dancers I have seen in my 50+ years in the dance world, that impression is still fresh in my mind, a testament to the talent of the irreplaceable – Mr. Ron Montez.

Do you have personal memories of Ron Montez - we would love to publish a full tribute to this icon of American Dance. Please Facebook Messenger me (Keith Todd) any recollections or photos you would like to share.

16th st and Campbell in the Biltmore area. Right around the corner from our previous location.

[05/22/20]   Ok now I can officially post what I started to this morning.

This is a bitter/ sweet day for me. Through this covid period my studio was forced to close, my landlord raised the rent and would not work with me on the rent

I applied for all the covid loans and received a total of $1000. Lol. I should add that I was not kicked out. This is my choice and will have 7th st till the end of June

So vs playing a victim I went full force to find a new location for Dance Starz.

I am proud to announce our new home at [email protected]. The studio will be ready in 3 weeks. I will miss my location on 7th st, however change is good.

Join me in September for our grand opening celebrating 9 years locally owned Dance Starz AZ.

Thank you Mike Jolly for being my rock.

[04/16/20]   Attention high school graduates have your prom and couples looking for a date night. Through this time memories can still be made.
I have a beautiful dance studio just sitting there.
I will supply the food (local business), DJ service and a 6 foot dance lesson with proper safety measures. 4 hours of memories. Just the 2 of you in a huge space. Support you local business and make a memory you will never forget. Call or text me for mor info.

[03/21/20]   After long consideration, we at Dance Starz Az feel the right thing to do is close the studio until April 6th. We want all to be healthy. We will hard to get everyone to their dancing goals. If you want a facetime lesson let us know
