Eamonn Knights & Ida Jones
Eamonn Knights and Ida Jones first met when they were children and their Guyanese and Trinidadian parents were friends, many years ago. Over the intervening years the two families lost touch, until unwittingly, Eamonn and Ida randomly connected in a dance partner search in April 2014, in the Washington DC area.
In just over three years the partnership has blossomed, as the pair has studied and worked to compete on the NDCA, USA Dance, and WDSF circuits. Most recently they represented the USA with fellow USA Dance athletes in the 2017 WDSF Senior I Latin World Championships in Miami, FL. The pair is also known for spreading the joy of dance through showcases in the Washington DC area.
Besides dance, Eamonn is also a known photographer and karate teacher. Ida enjoys traveling and is an accomplished vocalist.
