“We had a lovely time getting to know LaurieAnn during our first lesson.  It’s clear from the first 90 minutes of working with her she KNOWS her stuff…”

“LaurieAnn is one of the most brilliant and funny teachers we’ve ever had in and outside of dancing. It is clear that she is not only knowledgeable of the art of dance but also the psychology of dancing with a partner.”

“We had been planning on doing a swing dance for our wedding in the summer, and wanted to find someone local to teach us who had a flexible schedule. We sent Laurie Ann a YouTube video of a dance we liked to the music we wanted to use. Right off the bat, Laurie Ann gave us a lesson on the differences between lindy hop and the easier east coast swing, with detailed recommendations on how we should proceed in preparing for the dance.”

“Dancing does not come easily to me and my fiance had almost zero experience. Laurie Ann not only taught us the dance moves, but explained the process from a mental point of view–how the brain learns. She gave us some great tips about practicing the dance steps in our heads to strengthen the brain when we weren’t physically dancing. She was also great at finding little shortcuts and manageable moves for us to play with to spice up the routine.”
