Owner & Instructor
My name is Abraham (Abe) Sannoh, owner of Crown Dance Studio, and my vision is to empower people from all walks of life to discover their purpose and accomplish their dreams.
I took ownership of Crown Dance Studio in 2014, with the mission of making the studio an affordable dancing home for everybody, no matter one’s economic circumstance.
Ballroom dancing enhanced my strong work ethic, drive, and dedication that I apply in all aspects of my life. I wish for others to try ballroom dancing, so they too can experience firsthand all the benefits it offers.
I have over 24 years of dance experience: 14 years of teaching experience and 11 years of competitive dance experience. From all of my years competing in various dance competitions around the world, I am well known for my skills in American Rhythm & Smooth Dances. From my extensive dance career, I have acquired so much knowledge that I wish to share with others.
My favorite part of being an instructor is helping students and staff develop their dancing as they transform into better versions of themselves. No matter your current dance experience level, my warm and friendly personality will make learning to dance easy, fun and exciting.
You do not have to let your past circumstances define you. You have the power to make a decision to create the change you need to have the life you want. Make the decision to visit Crown Dance Studio TODAY! 🙂

Although Virak went to school for Computer Graphics and Engineering, he found a path to a career in Finance and Real Estate. After a seven-year tenure as a regional banker and consultant with a large commercial bank, he took an early retirement in 2012 to focus on his love for the arts.
Prior to teaching ballroom dance, Virak traveled to several cities with his dance-fitness group and shared his love of dance with thousands of fitness enthusiasts throughout the US. His initial interest Latin dance started in 2006 and he remains an active member of the local Latin-dance community. He has worked as a media director as well as offered support for several large dance festivals/events (DC Bachata Congress, Interfusion Festival, Bachata Bash, Fred Astaire, etc).
Virak began teaching ballroom dance at Arthur Murray in 2012 where he choreographed wedding dances, performed shows and competed. He refuses to go back to his old corporate-style of work and wishes to focus on and share his love of the arts with the world.
