Her extensive experience teaching and performing international folk dance taught her to observe and learn subtleties of styling among dances and between geographic regions (she’s danced with locals in 23 countries, and enjoys dancing swing, vintage, ballroom, country & western, contra and Latin). Because of this, her lessons focus on steps, but also include tips on styling and interaction with partners and others on the dance floor.
Please note: Though sometimes exceptions are possible, typically, 7-10 days’ advance notice is needed for scheduling lessons. Busy teaching seasons may require more lead time: January (for Mardi Gras), April (for JazzFest and Crawfish Fest) and June (for summer festivals).
