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.

Just wanted to update my review as I've continued working with Kay. She's wonderful! I've been super impressed with her ability to teach to adult beginners. She is very knowledgeable and I have a lot of trust in how she safely guides me through lessons. Additionally, she is excellent at communicating and teaching the nuances of each move and combination. I'm learning so much and having a blast. I would absolutely recommend Kay to my friends and family!

My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her.
