About Me

I started ballroom dance lessons in 2000 with a continuing education class through The University of Akron with Connie Fagen (King). I was "hooked" ever since. I have taken lessons with Tim Brown and now with Gordon Kwan. You will see me and my boyfriend Ed out dancing on weekends at some of our favorite spots in Northeast Ohio--ballroom studios, Savannah's or any place that has good music and dance floor! Ed has been dancing and competing for a while and has helped me bring my level of dancing up--thanks for being my dance partner, Ed!

 

My favorite dance? The dance to whatever music is playing! I do most ballroom (waltz, tango, foxtrot, Viennese waltz, quickstep), Latin (cha cha, rumba, swing, bolero, mambo, samba), west coast swing, hustle, night club two step and tiny bit of Argentine tango. I do not dance paso doble, jive, peabody and lindy.

About Me

Dr and Mother of 3 boys. Love the Latin dances best and also Fox Trot and Tango. Tennis takes a 2nd to dance but I'll exercise in these ways before enjoying the gym.  Photography is also a passion. Costuming is my crafting outlet and I have 2 cannon costumes for Star Wars for attending events. My favorite so far included Swing dancing at Severance Hall to the Cantina number as Padme with a StormTrooper on Stage with the Cleve. Orchestra  for ringing in the New year for 2007.

About Me

I met my husband when I walked into his dance lesson and now I'm completely hooked ... to him as well :)  We own a dance studio in Chagrin Falls called WHYM Dance + Movement + More.  So we get quite a bit of dancing done on our own floor, but love to visit other places in town, especially those with live music. We also compete in pro-am smooth, rhythm and standard divisions.

About Me

I am a professional swing dancer and multi year National and International swing dance champion in both Balboa and Lindy Hop.  I teach, compete, choreograph, judge and do on-site residencies at schools.  I created Get Hep Swing over 12 years ago and have been offering 2 monthly dances with LIVE MUSIC in the greater Cleveland area since then. We have dances the second Friday of every month at the Lakewood Masonic Temple and the last Saturday of every month at the Bohemian National Hall.

We are currently taking registrations for our 5 week swing dance classes at the Brecksville Center for the Arts. www.BrecksvilleArts.org

Please go to www.GetHepSwing.com or www.AllBalboa.com or www.JuniorJitterbugs.org to see more of what I do and how you can get involved.  Swing dancing is fun and for everyone!  No need for any previous experience or a dance partner. 

Feel free to call me for more details.  Valerie 216-374-1927
