Meet our Judges
Brandon was born into the dance life as his parents had their own studios in Arkansas, so naturally he was always there. It took him a little while to accept ballroom as a career, but Brandon admits he has loved every second of it. Although he has been around dance all his life, he has been teaching professionally for close to six years. Brandon loves putting smiles on others faces and seeing them grow not just as dancers but as individuals … watching their health improve and their confidence blossom.
W. Alan Jordan
Honorable W. Alan Jordan, Chief Judge, State Court of Cherokee County
Judge Jordan came to Cherokee County in 1986 as an attorney in private practice. He and his wife, Sharon, live in the Union Hill community. He became judge of the State Court of Cherokee County on Aug. 31, 2001.
Prior to becoming a State Court Judge, Judge Jordan served as an Associate Juvenile Court Judge in Cherokee County and served as the Municipal Court Judge of the cities of Woodstock, Marietta and Acworth, Georgia. He opened his first private practice law office in Cherokee County on Sept. 6, 1986 and practiced law in Woodstock and Canton for 15 years.
Judge Jordan is currently active in the Canton Rotary, has served as vice-president of the South Cherokee Optimist Club, vice-chairman of the Board of Directors of the Cherokee Child Advocacy Council and co-chaired a committee to bring the first children's emergency shelter to Cherokee County. He has presided over the Cherokee County DUI Accountability Court Program for the past seven years.
He obtained both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Georgia.
He does not know how to dance, but does know how to judge, so we’ll see what happens!
