My name is Louis van Amstel. As a professional dancer, a healthy lifestyle and good nutrition were always important to me and essential to support the strength and stamina needed to both travel and compete and to achieve world championship titles.

My experience on 9 seasons of Dancing with the Stars working regularly, for the first time, with celebrities who were not professional dancers and athletes made me think about Nutrition and Fitness from a different perspective. As a result of these experiences I created a partner free dance fitness program called LaBlast that is offered on DVD's and in classes worldwide. LaBlast was created for both the person who has never danced a step in their life and for the professional as well. LaBlast is about Dance, Fitness and Lifestyle and so nutrition is an important part of my LaBlast program.

Louis van Amstel is a grand slam 3 time world champion Latin Ballroom Dancer. He was nominated for an Emmy for his Choreography on Television. He danced 9 seasons on Dancing with the Stars with celebrities Kelly Osbourne, Priscilla Presley, Lisa Rinna, Sabrina Bryan, Margaret Cho and Neicy Nash. Louis regularly choreographs for So You Think You Can Dance.
