Eric Rush (a/k/a Eric Romero), a 37-year old dance instructor in Texas, was jailed last week when he violated the Court’s order enforcing his non-compete agreement with his former employer, Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Plano, Texas.  The Associated Press reported that Rush a/k/a Romero was unrepentent. 

Rush acknowledged in a jailhouse interview that he advertised his services and provided forbidden dance lessons to students in the area.

But in his defense, Rush said, he couldn’t help himself.

“I love to dance,” Rush told The Dallas Morning News. “It’s my soul.”
