I began dancing in 2003. When I started dancing it was a real
struggle to get my feet to go where my brain told them to go. My
instructor couldn't understand why I didn't quit. Well, I persevered,
and after many, many hours of practice it's becoming much easier.
Because I struggled so much in the beginning I know just how difficult
it is for some people to learn to dance. People told me I'd be a great
candidate for teaching lessons, so I gave it a
try, and it's been so much fun! I started teaching line dancing. My students say I have a lot of
patience with beginning dancers, and I provide enough instruction in a
variety of ways to make them successful. I also teach intermediate
line dances, so we have a wide variety of dancers coming to the
lessons. I also teach lessons in country swing, country 2-step, east coast swing, west coast swing, nightclub and pattern dances.
I have become addicted to dancing. I'm not only sharing my love of dancing and music by teaching, but now I am doing DJ jobs where I provide music at events and can also teach lessons to these groups.
I have DJ'd an evening of dancing at the Portland Dance Festival. I have also taught line dancing and nightclub 2-step at the Sweetheart Jamboree in Seattle. It's quite an honor to be asked to teach at these national UCWDC events. In February 2014 I won 2nd place in the 2-step Jack & Jill contest at the Sweetheart Jamboree. Woo Hoo!

I have danced much of my life, but only a few years ago did I really get the opportunity to learn couples dancing along with relearning line dancing. I LOVE IT! Now I not only attend dances and workshops, but I also assist Randy with teaching lessons and DJ'ing dances. I put together the playlists for our dances and design our websites and fliers. I do most of the "behind the scenes" work for our dances, while Randy is the "front man." We make a pretty good team.
We attend workshops and private lessons when we can to learn the newest dance techniques and new dances from some of the world's greatest dancers, such as: Barry & Dari Anne Amato, Maryann Harvey, Chris & Becky Haynam, Jeremy Bryan and Jo Thompson. In February we attend the Sweetheart Jamboree in Seattle where we've had country 2-step private lessons with Keith Armbruster, Country Dance World Champion, and private lessons with Barry & Dari Anne Amato. In June we often attend the Colorado Country Classic in Denver. July is the Portland Dance Festival. We have also attended the Eastern Dance Challenge in Herndon, Virginia; Calgary Dance Stampede in April; Frezno Dance Classic in May, Southbay Dance Fling in San Jose in August; Albuquerque Dance Fiesta in September; and Las Vegas Dance Finale in December...all to learn more to be able to teach you better.
