About the Instructors
Nathan & Alyssa have been teaching & performing together since 2013, and have over the years developed a friendly following of students at the Cats Corner dance party in San Francisco, their home venue.Â
Nathan specializes in Lindy Hop, the high-energy swing dance from the 1930s and 40s, and has been teaching, performing and DJing since 2005. He started swing dancing in 1997 and lindy hopping in 2000. A regular dancer in San Francisco since 2001, Nathan enjoys the creativity and personal connection of social dancing as well as the challenge and satisfaction on working on and improving his dance.
Alyssa Glanville is an award-winning West Coast Swing competitor and international dance teacher, but a lesser known fact is that she got her start dancing Lindy Hop, and still loves to cut a rug on the social dance floor! Her dancing blends technical prowess with an intricately playful sense of musicality and style. In between globe trotting and teaching with her main West Coast Swing dance partner John Kirkconnell, Alyssa has taken opportunities to train and perform with Nathan, including acrobatic Lindy Hop and Charleston showcases at the Richmond Homefront Festival.
