Come Out Dancing with Us!

I organize semi-regular “Dance Nights Out” at beginner-friendly venues in the East Bay. Dance Nights Out are a great opportunity to dip your toes into “real world” dancing with the safety of myself and fellow students by your side.

The dance style and venue varies (usually corresponding with the dance I'm teaching in my Level 2 group class that month).

We usually go places where there is a beginning drop-in lesson before the dancing begins. This way there's no experience necessary, and you can bring friends and family along for a fun evening out!

I had a really nice time out dancing with everyone. And thank you, Brandee, for dancing the Foxtrot with me—it was good 'real world' experience and helped with my confidence.
