Victor Williams decided to jump into dance classes at Spain Park High School. A huge athlete, all he knew was sports. Unfortunately, due to a terrible neck injury, dreams of becoming a professional athlete didn’t pan out. While attending The University of Alabama, Victor replaced his athletic drive by beginning to dance regularly. He attended Hip Hop and Contemporary classes, and was a member of the UA’s Ballroom Club. After graduation, he trained at the local Fred Astaire and, after a few years of training, he became an instructor at The Hip Room in Tampa, Florida. There he trained with Kristen Breaux, Johnny, and Lisa. He has now returned to his hometown, Birmingham, Alabama. Here he taught and trained at Champions Latin and Ballroom. Victor started his own dance company called IVMotion two years ago.
