Learn to partner dance with Kevin and Ann Hutchinson
Our philosophy is simple. We want you to have fun. Our students learn confidence with a variety of dances, so that they can stay on the dance floor and adapt to changes in genre, tempo and rhythm.
“Ann and Kevin are the greatest! You can’t beat them for the price, and you get two instructors, not one, so you learn much faster and have good form. I progressed more in four lessons than I did in three times as many with other instructors. Their teaching style is fun, clear and supportive. They specialize in working with beginners and will get you dancing with confidence. They are long-time leaders in the social dance community, so they know the scene and have a wealth of information. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” — Kate in Petaluma
Did you know you can swing dance to most any blues, rock, country and bluegrass tune? We’ll help you hear the rhythm and have the repertoire and skills to mix it up and have fun. Nightclub two-step is great for those slow songs. And you’d be amazed at how many genres have waltzes and cha-chas. It’s all about the time signature and the tempo. No one has two left feet. However, we all learn differently and at different speeds. We have a special knack for teaching beginners. Give us a shot. We have been dancing since we were kids and its the funnest thing we do. Have fun with us.
