The coronavirus has temporally stopped our social dancing and teaching, and it's challenging our minds and spirits.  But  we look forward, when we're on the other side of this mess, to connecting with you on the dance floor once again.  In the meantime, 
feel free to connect with us online.  And please do practice social distancing...and take good care.    Rick & Carol

We're Rick Lightbody and Carol Johnson. And we can provide you or your group with versatile, innovative instruction in a variety of partner dance forms.  Our most frequently taught forms are rotary waltz and cross-step waltz; nightclub two-step; East Coast swing and West Coast swing; and salsa, cha-cha, and other Latin dances.  But we're also well-versed in many other styles, including blues dance, hustle, and a variety of traditional and folk dances such as polka, schottische, hambo, etc.  Our home base is Ithaca, NY, from which we travel widely and frequently for dance activities within the Northeastern U.S., and occasionally beyond.  To learn more about our backgrounds, please click on "About Us," above.
