ELSIE DEANE: Elsie has been dancing since age 7, beginning with ballet and moving on to embrace many other styles as a teen including jazz, tap, hiphop, cabaret, contemporary, and ballroom. After having her daughter, she rediscovered a previous love of latin dance styles, finding enjoyment in performing and competing in teams and with a dance partner, and learning how to dance salsa socially – it’s natural habitat. Soon, focusing almost exclusively on the intricacies of latin dance styles, Elsie felt at home with the rhythms and honest expression of these dances. Before beginning to homeschool her daughter, Elsie coached teams for competitions in NZ and Australia, taught regular technique classes, and gave private lessons for students looking for more detailed instruction. *Many of our teens will remember Elsie from our 2019 pre-Ball classes and dance classes in terms 2 & 3 2019.*

KAHU LEARY: Experienced and skilled dancer, Kahu Leary will be joining Elsie to tutor our teens in 2020. These two dance teachers will have a wonderful insight and understanding of our homeschooled teens as Elsie is a homeschooling mother and Kahu was home educated! They love teaching our teens!
