Top teacher for the UCWDC organtization 3 years in a row. Clients range from 9-72. Coached many world champions.
It is always changing. I love the ”aha” moments when people do something they didnt think was possible.
Shawn's instruction and critiques inspire me. He characterizes mistakes and errors as "opportunities for improvement." Work on fulfilling the opportunities for improvement is balanced just right with his wonderful since of humor.
Shawn Swaithes is an amazing dancer and instructor. He knows how to modify his instruction to bring out the best in his students. His competition students have often won world championships or been in the top five in their category. What I like best is that he makes his lessons fun but encourages each student to be their best. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their dancing skills and those that just want to enjoy the gift of dancing!
Shawn is such a great person. He is very easy to work with and very professional. I have been a student of Shawn for 3 years and I have enjoyed every lesson. He is very knowledgeable and enjoyable to work with. He makes every lesson fun and challenging too.
Shawn is always encouraging and humorous while giving excellent instruction that is always helpful. And it is so much fun to dance with him! Always a great experience in a lesson or on the dance competition floor.
