    “It’s obvious that Laura puts a great deal of thought and preparation into her lesson plan.” “Footwork is clearly an important element of style to Laura”. Her emphasis on this is one of the things that sets her apart from some of her contemporaries.” “She starts each lesson with a warm-up consisting of a number of footwork alternatives designed to enhance the basic step.” “The way she integrates the new footwork enhancements into a repetitive warm up exercise is a great technique and a way to pack a lot into the hour.” “During the core skill sessions, Laura carefully chooses exercises and patterns that are effective at teaching the concept of lead-follow, so important to West Coast Swing and most other dance steps. Each new pattern is demonstrated with slower music at first, then students are challenged with a quicker score for repetition.” “Laura pays close attention to and is very patient with each student, regardless of the skill level they come in with”. “If she sees that a student is not moving through a new pattern quite as quickly as others, she will intervene as either the leader or follower to make sure the student reaches the breakthrough they are seeking.” And she does this efficiently so as to not hold up the class any more than necessary”. “Finally, Laura is careful to keep the class on task, while still allowing a little fun and mischief, but definitely completing her lesson plan and providing the value that her students are looking for.” Jim Barron, Ph. D.

    Dear Laura; I have really enjoyed this round of private lessons, and I’m looking forward to playing with all the new moves! Thank you for your fund and adventure packed lessons! I will definitely give high recommendations if anyone happens to notice how much fun I’m having with West Coast Swing. Feel free to use my comments on your website or advertising. Warm Regards, Jenny Hubert.

    That lesson last Saturday helped my East Coast quite a bit and made it fun again (swiveling and stuff!) Rob Stone

    Laura’s a great West Coast teacher as well as dancer – she presents challenging material but is very patient and meticulous about getting things to work out right. I love dancing with her. Etsu

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We have an initial email or phone conversation about what their goals are, and dance experience.  

We discuss dance packages and schedules.

Then we schedule a first lesson.
