  • John Cruz

    Paulette is the preeminent Lindy Hop instructor in Michigan. Few and far between have the professional experience and comprehensive knowledge of this iconic Harlem dance that she does.

  • Vitor Kamada

    I tool several other dance styles with different teachers. In US, it is very common to be overloaded by formal/verbal/theoretical instructions. I prefer Paulette style of learning by doing a combination of diverse and complex moves.

  • Douglas Shakelford

    Great instructor I strongly recommend this class.

  • Iris Schuster

    You really are amazing. Loved your classes at the Flyhouse.
