Over the years I have been blessed to work with some of the worlds most talented dancers. My most honorary experience was meeting and dancing with the late Frankie Manning. He taught me that dancing is the elixir of youth and happiness. I learnt this quiet early in my career. I can say dancing keeps me sane.

Jo is the studio principal and has been dancing for 30+ years in various dance styles.  Her passion for dancing started at the very young age of 4 in Ballet and Jazz.  Jo is one of New Zealand's first professionally qualified dance teachers in two swing styles; in Rock'n'Roll under the Federal Association of Dance Teachers Inc. in New Zealand and and Lindy Hop / Jitterbug under the Australian Rock'n'Roll Dancesport Council Inc.
