Kenneth was only dancing swing for a few years before he encountered blues and absolutely fell in love with it. Kenneth has spent the last year traveling to various scenes and workshops to get training and critiques from local and national instructors. As much as he enjoys dancing the blues, he loves sharing the blues even more. Whether it’s from chatting about the history of blues or working on technique, Kenneth is most excited when he’s engaging with other dancers and having fun…or chatting about Batman, movies, geek stuff, and did I mention Batman?
Myriam started blues dancing almost 4 years ago, in her home scene of Montreal.

Since, she has fallen in love with the dance even more, and strives to transmit her passion to her students. She is known for her French babbling and made-up words, as well as her seemingly unstoppable energy.
John was introduced to social dancing back in college where he formed an on-again off-again relationship with swing. John went to his first blues dance where he met his wife and fell in love with both. After kicking around the Montreal scene for a while, John moved to Nashville, TN. Since moving here, John has enjoyed further exploring the culture around blues. As both a DJ and instructor, John aims to help dancers experience and learn about different facets of blues. He enjoys bringing together music from the past to highlight where modern musicians are taking the music. In classes, John emphasizes on partnership connection, as well as, the individuals voice.
