A few times a year, Dance New York Iowa has a guest coach come in for extra special lessons. His name is Edward Simon, and he's the co-founder of DNY Iowa, and founder of DNY New York. He's won some awards that look fancy, although people usually introduce him as having "taught Cheryl Burke!"
Now it may be that he taught Cheryl Burke when she was 10 years old, and it may be that he was her professional coach who got her to the big time. But regardless of whether or not it means anything about his teaching skills, he must have, at some point, danced with her.
I have danced with him.
Cheryl Burke has danced with Rob Kardashian.
That puts me at three degrees of separation from a Kardashian, which means four degrees from the entire Kardashian family.
The tabloids are going to start calling any day now, I'm sure!
