Candace Rodriguez

Some of you might recall her from the hit TV show “Star Search”, where for 2 years she and her partner, Brandon Bryant, were the overall champions in the Dance category. She graduated from New World School of the Arts dance division in 2005 , and was been a member of the Senior Company here at Dance Empire for the past 5 years. She is also responsible for helping Angel to receive the bronze medal in the jazz dance world congress. Candace has been trained in all the major dance styles and has competed all over the nation winning first place over all. In the summer of 2005 Candace was named the Senior Outstanding Dancer in the Nation in NYC.
In 2008 when Angel wanted to pursue her goals with the Elite Company of Dance Empire, Candace became the Artistic Director for the Dance Empire Studio. After auditioning for her life long dream of becoming a dancer for Disney World, Candace temporarily left her Dance Empire family so that she may fulfill those dreams. She became a parade performer, danced in all the Holiday shows and performed in the Oprah Parade.

Candace recently started her own family, her son Hunter is now 2 years old. Candace has moved back to Miami where she can continue her teaching at Dance Empire and be a mommy too!
