Student Medal Program
Karen and Michael are certified DVIDA instructors and began teaching together as ballroom instructors and graduates of the Ballroom Dance Teachers College. Over the years they have applied dance theory learned in ballroom pedagogy classes to improve their teaching of popular dance patterns and improvisations that are part of the lindy/swing community, salsa rueda community, argentine tango community. This has benefited their adult private dance students and the group classes taught for private events before live bands or DJ'd events. Karen and Michael have travelled and studied dance in Cuba, Argentina and Montreal, as well ongoing learning in the San Francisco Bay Area.
