"Dance does not come especially easily for me.
Understanding and accepting,
this challenge within myself,
I believe makes me a better teacher".

"I have always loved music; I have always loved to dance.
Dance is about responding to ones passion. Without passion,
there is no dance, the dance is dead".

"My first swing dance lesson was when I was a young teenager, sometime in the late 1950's, with my mother, in the living room of our family home . Like most kids of that time, I was a great fan of American Band Stand. I realize now though, that Dick Clark did a lot to change Swing/Lindy, and not necessarily for the better".

"I don't see myself as an especially skilled dancer. I think I dance very well, at the level I dance and I have a lot of fun with my dancing. I think there are others, including some of my students (especially among the kids), who have the potential to be much better dancers than I will ever be.
What I take great pride in, is my teaching. I am (I think), a very good teacher".
