Brandon Grainer, Jo Jo/BJ
Brandon's journey as a Ballroom dancer started 17 years ago, just before he enlisted in the military service. Initially attracted to dance as a way to relieve stress, Brandon found himself hypnotized by the feel and the smoothness of Ballroom dancing. While he has studied with some of the top dancers in the metro-Detroit, including Smooth as Silk, Detroit Dan, and Kevin Collins, his dance moves are based on his own unique style. Brandon is a veteran member of VP, and is also the Spin Doctor on the 1’s & 2’s. He loves teaching as much as he loves dancing, and he especially enjoys watching his students’ progress and become performers themselves. He is also a loving husband and father.
