Swing dance is a really fun an easy style of dance to accomplish! It can be danced to essentially every style of music. It is a Ballroom dance in the Rhythm category. With me you will learn swing steps, turns, and stylistic qualities to really make you stand out on the dance floor! Fun for all ages, I teach east and west coast swing.

I started taking lessons with Kay with no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I am teachable and all it took was a little patience. She came highly recommended from a friend and I am glad I followed through!

Had my first hip hop lesson yesterday and it was fun! I am not a dancer so learning more about my body is my goal here - be more flexible and just have fun!

Kay is phenomenal! Her patience and kindess is unreal. She is extremely knowledgeable and I love having her as a teacher! I walked in thinking I'd try dancing for a week and 5 months later I'm so happy!

Kay is so sweet, but knows her stuff! She keeps everything extremely professional, and easy to learn. My favorite part is that she is down to earth and not up tight like other ballroom dance instructors. Go Kay!

I love Kay!! I met her when she used to work for a Franchise! Her prices are a lot better and she is extremely patient! I feel like I get so much done, and she is not arrogant like a lot of dancers with experience.
