"I am constantly impressed by how well they are able to craft classes that are rich in history, movement quality, and fun."
"Our event had a number of issues, but Grace and Nick worked through them with us in a gracious and encouraging manner that made the event feel easy. Not only that, but they helped us as young scene leaders by teaching us how to run an event in a better way."
Nick's dancing is simple but musical, understated but empowering to his follow, chill with an edge of humor…..and a constant foundational grounding in the blues idiom. He teaches blues dance as a vernacular style with historical context peppered throughout and a sizable side of humor. His classes tend to focus on blues elements including idiom dances and variants (especially struttin'), musicality, improvisation, and conversational dance.
Nick enjoys competing at blues events to keep his skills sharp and demonstrate his vision of the dance; his successes in 2016 alone include 1st place at the Strictly competitions of Nocturne and North Star Blues, and 2nd place at the North Star JnJ and the Mile High Blues Strictly.
"Despite being a beginner at the time, they were really approachable and have continued to be a resource to me. Super fun, knowledgeable, and friendly! (Not to mention they have great hair)."
