“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.” -Mikhail Baryshnikov


What motivates me as a dancer and competitor isn’t as much the pursuit of perfection as it is to challenge myself to be my personal best, while enjoying the process and the journey. As an instructor, I share that same approach with my students.

In my Connection Dance group class, the focus is on making sure my students learn strong fundamentals while having fun.

All Levels Group class

Perfect for newcomers as well as experienced dancers looking to reinforce their skills. Over time, the classes build on the basics, with patterns and more technical insights to help you grow into the dance in a way that’s fun and easy to understand. The goal of these classes is for everyone to take the class material they’ve learned and be able to take a partner out on the floor and dance confidently to a 3 minute song.

Private Lessons

Focus shifts to the specific goals of the individual student (or couple). In addition to refining the basics, privates are a great way to tailor your learning experience to match your specific dance goals. Connection and compression are the most important concepts of west coast swing, and when taught in group class, it can be difficult to master. Working one on one during private lessons with me, I can help you develop these concepts as a leader or follower. Even more, west coast swing is a dynamic dance with plenty of creative opportunities to put “make it your own” and private lessons are the perfect setting for focusing on developing your unique style.
