Michael & Claire have been teaching in the bay area for 3 years in venues such as The Rent Party, Avenue Dance Studio and 9:20 Special. They are the founders of the Motion Explosion Dance Company, a group specializing in energetic and creative fusion of Swing, Jazz and Hip Hop.
At Cats Corner they will teach fun lessons that bundle versatile moves and solid technique with creative and musical inspiration, encouraging each student to be self-expressive and get more mileage from the moves they already know.

Ruth skipped into her first dance class more than 25 years ago, and has since been training in as many dance styles as she can get her feet on. Dance takes her all over the world, from judging blues competitions at North Star Blues to a recent Argentine Tango teaching residency in Indonesia.
When not traveling, Ruth resides in San Francisco, where she teaches workshops, classes and private lessons and finds time to run her weekly blues dance venue, Shades of Blues. Passionate about teaching and with over 14 years of experience, she brings a balance of technical precision and silly fun.
