As an example of the international recognition and acclaim that Vinny Munno and Co-Founder Jeff Sandler have received, they were invited to preside over the first ever Annual Euro Salsa Congress in Munich, Germany. Vinny acted as DJ and Jeff acted as Host and Master of Ceremonies at that spectacular international event. Vinny is pictured at left in his role as DJ at the First Annual Euro Salsa Congress in Munich, Germany.

At the age of eight, Vinny began his dancing career by training in ballet, jazz, and tap. At that time, he dreamed becoming a Broadway dancer. He continued to study ballet for eight years at the New Jersey Dance Theater Guild, and he paid his way by working as a maintenance man and front desk assistant. He graduated from the Dance Educators of America Teacher’s Training School in New York City. For six years he appeared in the New Jersey Dance Theater Guild’s production of “The Nutcracker”.

Vinny later studied Ballroom dance seriously, and became an accomplished Ballroom dancer and competitor. Dancing with US Champion Professional Susie Thompson, Vinny won titles including US American Rhythm Pro-Am Gentleman Champion in 1999 and 2000, and US American Smooth Pro-Am Gentleman Champion and Ohio Star American Rhythm Finalist in 2001.

Vinny hails from New Jersey. He grew up in a musical family and learned to play the organ at age five, and years later became a church organist. During his school years, he played baseball, soccer, and football and was exceptionally skilled in gymnastics.

Vinny holds a degree in mortuary science and worked at Baird Case Funeral Home for two years. He began his banking career as a loan processor and spent the next eight as branch manager, where he developed finance skills that he now puts to practice in overseeing Goldcoast Ballroom’s business operations.

Vinny Munno’s extraordinary business sense, dancing expertise, and musical background, combined with Jeff Sandler’s diverse experiences in the world of art, dance, and show business, were vital in planning and establishing Goldcoast Ballroom.
