Name Origination

U-RDancing is formed from the last names of the founders of the dance studio -  Kathi Urban and Tom Riza - URDancing..


U-RDancing was established in Feb 1991 by Kathi Urban and Tom Riza to provide quality professional instruction for Ballroom, Latin and Swing dancing. Group classes, private lessons, social dances and competition training are provided to help people become better "dancers" and to enjoy their dancing. 

Tom and Kathi started their dancing career in the Midwest where they taught classes & private lessons so that students could improve social dancing skills. They also competed with students in Pro/Am competitions from beginner level to advanced.  During this time they themselves competed professionally to enhance their skills & expertise.

They moved to Seattle in 1988.   There they formed U-RDancing in 1991.

They returned to participating in Dance Competitions with their students in 2005 in the local area, where they earned many Top Teacher awards and their students won Top Student awards.

Today, classes & private lessons are provided weekly.  A number of Social Dances are provided throughout the year for U-RDancing students and the dance community to practice their dancing skills and have fun.
