I’ve been putting on dance events in the central Florida area for over 10 years. Swinger outings, Swing Pins, Swing in the Park, Dancing in the Dark,Late Night Blues remix dances, and other Blues dance events. Dance Workshops in Lindy Hop and Blues Dancing, Charleston, Shim Sham and Fusion. I also Created the Blues n Soul Experience 2008 as well as Blues n Soul 2 & 3. I was also on the ORLX committee for ORLX 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
I offer dance lessons in Lindy Hop, Blues Dancing, Charleston, and East Coast Swing. With a focus on the Lead and Follow dynamics, my students get the understanding of the dance rather than just a series of moves. Having Fun is the the main goal, so allow me to help you get to your dancing best.
