What makes you want to learn swing dancing?

No answer yet

Do you have any dance experience?

Hello! I took ballroom dance lessons with my husband before we were even married somewhere in the late 70's early 80's in Highland Illinois. I have not danced in probably 8 years. My favorites are jitterbug and polka. However, six ankle surgeries in 4 years (many months off my feet, on crutches, in boots, and in physical therapy) have left me much less "light on my feet" than I used to be. I am SO looking forward to trying, though! I have sat out MANY a dance!

What kind of music do you like?

I married my piano teacher and we divorced after 25 years of marriage, 32 years of knowing each other. I love ALL MUSIC. I am very eclectic in my music style. I love 70's rock probably the best but Big Band music and polkas would be a close second! And, of course, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers are my all time favorite band that I have followed for 35 years and driven all the way to the east coast to see.


I am a divorced elementary school teacher. My kids are raised, I've finished grad school, and I'm looking for fun! I can never find swing dancers ANYWHERE! I stumbled across your site tonight! YAY!
