  1. Absolutely loved this interview! I feel like it has opened up my mind to being more accepting of my own dancing, as well as others. The music, as well as our ages, personalities, and perspectives really does inform the dance expression! Thank you so much!

  2. Thanks for posting this interview. It validated a lot of things I’ve been noticing about the West Coast Swing world. For me, I think I’m sticking to the basics as they were when I learned them from Ray Fox – guess that’s a bit old fashioned now, but it works for me. Happy dancing!
