Learn to Dance!

Connect to music, yourself and others via dance! Social dance is one of the most enjoyable ways to exercise your body and brain, and to meet friendly people in a fun, wholesome environment. No experience or partner is required! I especially welcome complete beginners and self-proclaimed “2 left feet”-ers!

I offer customized lessons for individuals, couples and groups. I break moves down clearly, build material gradually, and work with you at your own pace in my customized sessions. My teaching style is friendly, clear, upbeat and encouraging. As a trained dancer I teach from the foundations of movement – not just copying shapes with your body, but how to create efficient movement from within – which translates into richer connection and greater ease for you and your partner.

Partner dance is a lifetime skill you will be proud to master, even just a few basic moves. It is a non-verbal language that you can enjoy all over the world, with people who don’t even speak your verbal language. You can use it anywhere: parties, nightclubs, weddings, formal events, dates, hoe-downs; with friends, family, and strangers – it’s a wonderful way to meet new people from all walks of life! Partner dance enhances our ability to be present and connect with others in a positive, considerate, and respectful way. It helps us let go of our everyday concerns and reconnect with our spirits. It improves posture, physical mobility, body awareness, and body image. And of course being alive in your body and feeling great makes you more attractive!
