In continuing the theme of getting to know our instructors…Here are 10 things you may not know about Christine:
1: I have come face to face with a live catfish. In the wild. Not a pretty sight.
2: I am also a licensed RN, so if Tarah is not around for the band-aid…
3: I enjoyed dancing en pointe for 4 years. Yes, it can be enjoyable.
What is the difference between East Coast Swing (ECS) and West Coast Swing (WCS)? This is a question I get asked a lot. Of course I never mind answering this question (or any question from my students for that matter), but I figured it might be nice to explain a little bit here…Be sure to find “WCS vs. ECS Round 1” for a brief history of each dance.
Lets talk about what each dance looks like.

Today’s video comes to us from instructor Brent Bianchini. Why’d he pick this video?
This is one of my favorites of all time. This really puts into perspective the power that choreography can put behind dance craft.
Chelsea Hightower (Latin Ballroom dancer) and Mark Kanemura (Jazz dancer) took the world by storm in 2009 with “Bleeding Love”. It was incredible Hip-Hop routine choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo and nominated for an Emmy.
