Dance Kinexion was originally born out of the simple joy of sharing my favorite hobby with my friends and community. Since 2008, my passion has been my primary profession, offering public dance classes, private lessons special events and DJ entertainment in Bozeman, Livingston, Big Sky, Butte and other Montana communities..
I combine my dance and music education with a background in adult learning and personality styles to help my clients meet their own personal learning goals.
I believe dance is not only a fun social activity, but also a superb way to “kinect” more fully with our partners, our community and – most importantly – ourselves. As Martha Graham said, “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”
Nothing is as motivating to me as watching people of all ages literally bloom from the confidence they develop from learning to dance, deepening their skills or enhancing their relationships. I love to teach and choreograph and specialize in working with wedding couples who want to create a memorable experience for their first dance, especially those who want to to learn in a highly supportive atmosphere at their own pace.
I’m a certified American Rhythm instructor (swing and latin) and have trained with top professionals in Country Western, American Smooth, West Coast Swing, International Standard, International Latin, Argentine Tango. I also love to share the social “club” dance styles such as Country Swing, Rhythm Two-Step, Night-Club Two-Step, Salsa, Blues, Bachata and Zouk. I am constantly seeking continued education and strive to bring the current “state of the art” ideas and modern styling into all of my classes, while honoring the traditions of the past.
Every day with dance is a new adventure! I look forward to sharing the adventure with you here amid the splendor of the mountains and the sublime pursuit of “kinexion.”
