Juanita Dickhaus fell in love with music, dancing, and choreography as a young child. After moving from the Midwest, she vowed to try any and all dance styles she could in the Bay Area. While she quickly found most partner dancing both terrifying and addicting, her first true love was balboa. Nowadays, she also enjoys dancing collegiate shag and lindy (and a smattering of other dances), and helps out with events.
Juanita is always excited to share and dive deep into techniques, partner connection, clips, and tips, aiming to adapt to a variety of learning styles and goals. She wants everyone to have fun social dancing and feel able to better express themselves to swing music, no matter the dance style. Feel free to come say hi and ask her to dance!
