About Bob Rizzo
With a long-standing career as an international dancer, choreographer and teacher, Bob Rizzo got up every morning and put on his dance shoes. He traveled around the city and he traveled around the country. He traveled to Western Europe and as far East as Japan. And everywhere Bob went, the message was the same, the world longed to learn the latest styles and steps coming out of New York. So in 1989, Rizzo accepted the challenge, and founded Riz-Biz Productions. Now, nearly eighteen years later, Rizzo has succeeded in becoming one of the leading producers of instructional dance videos in the country.
