In 2013, after dancing West Coast Swing for 15 years, I had what I consider to be a perfect dance. It was exceptional because the dance that I attempted to lead was completely fulfilled by my partner Sophie Cazeneuve. Sophie and I had only danced a few times before together, but I found her method of following so connected that it felt like she could read my mind. The most amazing part was that the dance was recorded (see below).  Of course, I felt it was just a lucky moment.  However, years later, I had my second perfect dance with her again. So, it was her, not me. I feel so honored to have Sophie coming to Connecticut to teach some West Coast Swing workshops. 

Sophie is one of the top West Coast Swing dancers in the New York City area. Her experience in Ballroom, Salsa, and Hustle have made her West Coast Swing elegant and exceptionally smooth. She moved from France to New York City in 2010, refined her knowledge in multiple dance forms, and has become a certified yoga teacher. Her diverse experience in partner dancing makes her an exceptional resource to help you improve your dancing.
