Who teaches at The Green Door?

As we are a nonprofit organization, our instructors (as well as our Board of Directors, DJs, maintenance and cleaning people), are all volunteers who enjoy swing music and dance enough to give their time generously. Consequently, you will find many different instructors and different lessons. Taking lessons from different instructors often helps you to learn faster because you are exposed to different approaches. All of our instructors bring tons of dance experience to the dance floor for our Tuesday and Saturday beginner lessons (7:30pm). They’ll provide approximately 30 minutes of the basics followed by 30 minutes of beginner and intermediate dance moves.

On occasion, we also bring in some special out-of-town teachers to lead weekend workshops. These folks are often award winning competitive dancers and can bring some more intermediate and advance level instruction to our dancers. Keep your eyes on our calendar of events for more information about upcoming workshops.
