Kerry has been teaching Lindy Hop and other swing dances for eight years. She is continually delighted by the language of social dance and will talk to you for literal hours about it. She loves cereal and 30min animated comedies.
Kerry is based in New Orleans now, a city teeming with passion and a place that entertains a baseline of joy and musicianship unmatched anywhere in the world. She seeks to maintain the lessons of connection, community, and inclusivity she learned in the City of Brotherly Love and add to them layers of musicianship and individuality that she cannot help but soak in here in the Big Easy.
As a dancer and teacher, Kerry values feeling and humor. Her concentration is on improving technique, but always as a means to another end.
Dan is immersed in the music and the movement. He constantly travels internationally to continue learning, happily sharing his ideas along the way. In his teaching, Dan’s enthusiastic approach brings a focus on innovation, connection, and attention to your partner. Dan is also a veteran DJ, spinning for events across 4 continents and DJing everything from international events to local dances on a weekly basis. He’s also organized both locally and for international events as their Head DJ, including BluesSHOUT! and The Blues Experiment. In the end, Dan is most excited to work hard at improving the dance and to see his students break through their boundaries.
