Deborah-Marie Diamond M.A. is a master Teacher of the performing and healing arts, a drummer, and a dancer in Asheville, North Carolina. Zeki Maviyildiz is a renowned ballroom dancer and instructor in Asheville, North Carolina. He is a member of the Duke University Ballroom Dance Team and is a world famous Turkish Folk Dancer.

"We created ZeDiamond Dance Method for people who can't dance, have trouble with rhythm, want to learn dance, or have had a terrible time at dance class." said creator, Deborah-Marie Diamond. "It will also help you improve your relationship skills, heighten your consciousness, and quiet your mind."

"Not only have the DVD's debuted today, but our website also went live, as well as discussion groups, blogs, Twitter and face book feeds." comments Marketing Assistant, Amy Barnes. "We are opening up a dialog for dancers. Not only will we discuss dance steps, we are also opening up to conversations about musical timing, rhythm, and alternative ways to teach and learn dance."
