Meet the Instructor

Hei Everyone!

I’m so excited to be able to teach dancing in Tromsø.  This is a truley fantacstic place!  The people are amazing, the culture is happen’n and the scenery… well, lets just say that this is the land dreams were made of!

I always wanted to learn to dance but didn’t have the opportunity til my late teens.  Even though I began performing I never quiet liked the competition scene.  I had more fun dancing ‘just for the fun of it’!  I was attracted to American social dance because of free-styling which enables you to create a new and exciting dance every time.  Free-styling certainly gives your connection, senses and spontaneity a decent workout – I love it!  It also meant that I could dance with any partner becuase I wasn’t restricted to a routine.  In American social you don’t just learn one dance, but all of them, giving you every opportunity to keep dancing the whole night.  I enjoyed how the many dances of social ballroom had their own destinct style and technique, and learning all the dances meant that I could dance to any music, anywhere! But most of all, social dance meant that I was free to enjoy myself, laughing and playing, without rules or restrictions, or being ’on show’.  I loved dancing so much that I became a teacher early in my career.

I am very passionate about providing the highest qualiy of social dance tuition.  It is important to me that students are taught proper technique as well as floor craft.  Tuition shouldn’t just be about learning steps but be a complete learning experience so the student can become an all-round social dancer.  It’s important to me that students get the most out of their dancing – and their money!  I enjoy seeing my students have fun and achieving their goals in dancing – it’s certainly the icing on the cake.

It’s fantastic that there is a revival of ballroom dance thanks to shows like ’Skal Vi Danse’ and ’So You Think You Can Dance’.  It proves how easy it is to learn.  So what are you waiting for?  There are some fantastic dance events in Tromsø that I’m sure you will just love to be a part of.  Keep an eye out for the dance happenings around the city so you can join in the fun and be a part of the wonderful dance family we have here in Tromsø.

Yours in dancing
