Joe Wynes enters his eleventh year as a multi winning instructor for the Dancing with Vero’s Stars 2020 event. In the mid 1990’s Joe began his dance career at the local Fred Astaire Dance Studio while working as a Respiratory Therapist here in Vero Beach. In 2000, he founded the Vero beach Chapter of the United States Ballroom Dancers Association (USABDA now called USA Dance). Joe participated in the original Swingstation’s Dance Troupe. Under the Swingstation banner, opportunities followed to perform and develop numerous showcase routines for a variety of events and venues. In 2006, he started his business “Desire to Dance”, where his classes in social ballroom, Swing and Latin dance at the Sebastian Community Center have provided a cost effective and fun opportunity for people to learn to dance. Info about Joe’s classes can be found on his website www.joewynes.com
During the beginning of his career as a Respiratory Therapist, Joe spent several years specializing in the treatment of babies and children with breathing issues that could have been avoided if community assistance programs like the Healthy Start Coalition had then been in place. Now that he has turned in his hospital scrubs for dance shoes, Joe is helping to improve outcomes for the mother and babies of Indian River County.
Joe will be dancing with Star Dancer Dee Kimberlin >>
