See the list of dances below and select the ones that interest you. I can teach you the dance steps. I’ll have to, because we’ll need them, just like we need clothes to wear. But my real goal is to teach you to dance together. Dancing is two people connecting, communicating, and moving together to the music. I’ll teach you the sense and feel of a dance partnership and what each partner contributes and receives from it. You cannot learn this by watching a video or reading a manual. You have to learn through very active participation.
I teach all ages. I teach beginners who want to learn one or several dances, couples who only want to dance at their wedding, experienced social dancers who want a tune up, and I coach competitive couples. I teach in a comfortable style so that new students who might be nervous about this endeavor will feel welcomed and appreciated. I will accommodate your preferences for a teaching style: learning by doing, watching, explanation, or any combination. My concern is that we meet your goals; that you learn to dance well with just one partner or, if you prefer, to dance socially with anyone, in the situations you are likely to use these skills.
My years of experience, and a dedication to continually educate myself on dance trends and teaching technique, as well as an historical perspective, have given me original techniques for your benefit. I am forever excited about dancing, teaching, and doing both, and you will feel that enthusiasm from me.
