Our rule is to treat all our guests the way we want to be treated. Step through the looking glass and discover the Ballroom Elevated experience through the lens of The NV Ball.
This ballroom dance was first organized in 1986 and is the longest-running competition in Las Vegas. Much like fine wine, The NV Ball continues to mature and become more refined, and as of 2020 has become the official home of ballroom elevated, where every dancer is treated like royalty. We look forward to seeing you at The NV Ball from August 18 to 23, 2020.

Lana is bringing the world of high society, luxury, and world-class service to The NV Ball so that all our dancers can experience the royal treatment.
Vartan Zakhariants is an entrepreneur and a retired professional dancer who combined his passion for dance and desire to share his knowledge of ballroom dance with others and opened his first dance studio, which became an instant success. He began competing with his pro-am students and learned first-hand what they wanted from their ballroom dance experience and competitions. With his technical dance knowledge and amazing “people skills,” Vartan soon became one of the most sought-after pro-am ballroom dance teachers. As the number his students increased, he was able to expand and grow his business, and together with his beautiful wife, Tania Reis, built VZ Dance Studio, into one of the top ballroom dance studios in North America.
VZ Dance Studio has received over 30 Top Studio Awards and two World Class Top Studio titles.
Along with the VZ Dance Studio team, Vartan hosts monthly fabulous themed parties, bringing both students and community members together in a fun-filled, healthy environment. As the co-organizer of The NV Ball, Vartan is excited to bring his knowledge of the competitive ballroom dance industry along with his creative flair to help make the NV Ball an unforgettable experience.
Vartan, his wife Tania, and their beautiful daughter Gabriela live in Las Vegas. When they are not working or spending time with Gabriela, they like to invest in real estate as a hobby and volunteer with the Emerald Dream Foundation, changing the world one Act of Random Kindness at a Time.
