“I have taken lessons and workshops with both Myles and Tessa and have been impressed with their professional approach to teaching. Having come from a long history of “other” dance forms it was refreshing to be welcomed and encouraged to explore the script of West Coast Swing and then to be enthusiastically encouraged to incorporate my knowledge from my previous career in ballet, tap, contemporary, flamenco, jazz..SOOOO much fun! Their honesty and support in growing up in WCS is valuable to all and certainly appreciated by me.”

“When we watch Myles and Tessa dance we are inspired!  We see movement and expression in their dancing that is exciting, musical, interpretative and emotionally moving. The technique and dance skills a student learns is exactly what they use themselves.  We see things we want to emulate and through their privates and intensive workshops they help students to do so in their own way and by using proper body mechanics to make it work for the student.  They instil great technique, offer great advice, and explain dance movement theory that seems to make sense to our bodies.”

“What I love about lessons with Tessa is her really interesting way of teaching. She never says : “Stop thinking, just do this shape like that because I told you to”.  Instead, she takes the time to ask you the right questions to guide you to think for YOURSELF about your dance.  This self-analysis makes me understand my own body mechanics, and learn even faster! Now every time I leave the ballroom, it’s always with a big smile because I had a lot of fun and also because I discovered something new about my way of dancing. It’s always like a revelation.”
