I am one of the top teachers in my dance style. I trained, taught, and performed internationally with Frankie Manning, THE Father of Lindy Hop/swing dance, for many years - 15 plus.
I have been credited as "the pioneer" in the revival of Lindy hop, Collegiate Shag, SwingBlues, and Charlston in northern Oregon in the 1990s, teaching over 600 students every Sunday at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, and teaching in many cities throughout Oregon through my dance studios "The Joint is Jumpin!" You can view my resume on my website at DeniseSteele.com
My expertise is in Lindy Hop, vernacular jazz, Charleston, and swing line dances
I enjoy teaching all levels, from beginners to performance levels, including individual movement and partner dancing.
I also am available for corporate functions, weddings, and group or couple wedding dance lessons!
My students! I love teaching others to dance - dance is joy: it is therapeutic, healthy, creative, and an important social activity to enjoy throughout your whole life!
I also love traveling and teaching dance in different places in the world. Invite me to teach for your university, school, or workshop event! 😊
Great interaction Fun lesson Prepared
