Renata Nitscheova-Knaus

Renata started ballroom dancing at age 12 in the Czech Republic, and started competing at the amateur level at age 15 in Latin and Standard dance styles. During college in Prague, Renata joined a top dance studio, Staccato, focusing on Latin with various coaches and competing with her partner.

After moving to Cleveland in 1999, she concentrated on teaching dance and learning rhythm and smooth styles. She began competing in the American smooth professional division and in pro/am events in both rhythm and smooth.

Renata brings more than 20 years of teaching experience, and 10+ years of competition experience.  Her professional knowledge includes all four styles of dance.
