About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Cathy has a unique approach to teaching partner dance. Focusing on "Social Dancing" as opposed to "competitive dancing", She teaches how to dance with any partner to any song rather than memorizing steps and routines for only one. Emphasis is on having fun while learning the techniques of movement, leading and following, partnering, musical expression. She gives you the tools to learn to dance smooth and naturally and to develop your own creativity with confidence. This is not a "Studio". We do not require contracts. If you once pay for one of our "Regularly Scheduled Classes" (4 weeks of 1hr/week) you are entitled to FREE REPEATS for that class every time that class is offered and at no additional charge. This allows you to become more confident and competent over time. Classes are geared for beginners or intermediate level dancers. Four weeks of class cost $45/single person or $80/couple. Private lessons are available at $45/hr.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Professionally trained in American and International Styles of Ballroom and Latin, Swing, Night Club, Country Western, and Victorian/Historical dances. I have been teaching partner dancing in Colorado for over 30 years. Social dancing has been an important part of the building of communities throughout our history. The love of dance was passed on to me from my grandfather and my mother. I feel a responsibility to keep social dancing alive in our communities for the generations. I believe anyone who can walk can dance. My greatest reward is to bring the natural dancer out in those students who think they cannot dance. I see joy in young and old alike in being able to move to music with another person and I see the physical, mental, and psychological health benefits that come from dance. What's not to love about sharing that with others?

    Responds to emails/texts right away. She is an experienced teacher who transmits the joy and philosophy of dancing. Before you know it, you are dancing and not just memorizing steps.

    Cathy was great!! She was very friendly and made the lesson fun. I hired Cathy so me and my husband were more comfortable at our wedding. We danced the night away! Thank you Cathy!

    We used Cathy for our dance lessons for our wedding. When we started I had a grimacing groom because he was in pain from an injury. Cathy found a solution and then I had a happy groom! We all loved that she wasn't focused on teaching us steps that we wouldn't remember but instead focused on us having fun together on the dance floor. She was fabulous and I highly recommend her. Thank you Cathy!!

    After just one lesson, we were able to enjoy our event with some basic dance steps.

    Five stars so far. Having a fun time. Instruction is intuitive, fun, progressing. I feel that I am finally going to have some confidence in my dancing and that Cathy will help me to evolve this quickly.

    Great first lesson!
    We've had one lesson and just had a blast! Cathy approaches people in a way that makes sense for them. We just really enjoyed our first lesson and will be using her as we prepare for our wedding.

    Cathy was great!
    We were looking to do a dance class or two to get a better feel for our first dance. We didn't want anything crazy as we had very little dance experience, but Cathy was great with helping us learn a couple basics and a great intro into our dance and exist strategy. Overall, it worked out great!

    Taught us to dance and much more
    Cathy not only taught us some basic dance moves but more importantly, she taught us to love to dance. We were not expecting that and so we really recommend taking a dance lesson (or more) with Cathy.

    The dance of a lifetime!
    Cathy gave us just what we needed to make our wedding dance a success. She is a great coach and motivator and helps you work with what skills you already have rather than forcing you to learn new steps or choreography. My husband (then fiance) and I learned to connect with each other more than we ever had before in our dancing. Rather than stressing about performing in front of all of our guests, we had a blast and just enjoyed each other. Our family and friends are still raving about our dance.

    A Hoppin' Good Dance Teacher
    Cathy is teaching me the Lindy Hop in a very fun, enjoyable systematic manner that meets my learning style. She is a superb dance teacher, and I can highly recommend her.

    Cathy was very patient and understanding of our situation (our wedding was only a few days away and we only had time for one short lesson). We were still able to learn quite a lot about dancing as an artform and not simply steps or choreography. My only regret is that we only had time for one lesson. We will be returning after the wedding for more lessons.

    Cathy is incredibly knowledgable and so helpful for our beginning level of dancing. With our wedding in 3 short weeks, we felt like pros after only the first session, and we both have 2 left feet! Thank you Cathy!!!!
