Lessa has been studying and performing various forms of dance for most of her life. In her continuous discovery of partner dance, she found that her best, most creative, and most satisfying series of movements come when she stops thinking about what she’s doing, and just allows the dance, the music, the connection, to flow through her. In this conduit-like state, she finds serenity. It is the experience of these feelings that she strives to impart to as many people as she possibly can.
- Everything that you’ve done before informs how you move.
- Dance ability and Lead/Follow ability are not the same and both are required to make a great Partner Dancer.
- There are three steps to mastery – Imitate, Assimilate, Create.
- Complexity arises from the interaction of a few simple premises. Complicatedness arises from looking for an end with no premises or principles.
These are some of the tenets that inform how Lucas looks at dance and teaching. With diverse experience from Wrestling, Lindy Hop, Blues, Tango, Ballet, Powerlifting, Wilderness survival at his disposal, his world view has been shaped. He was a boy raised with (not by, with) wolves. In trying to understand the premises, even implied, that his students use to approach dance, he is better able to help them shape their dance. His current goal is to get students dancing congruently with there partners and the music, like themselves, but better and having a great time while doing it.

Jeanette has been involved with this from the beginning. She’s the managing program director for Salongen Helsingborg and is our eyes and ears on the ground. She’s also been a composer for stage productions and involved with several projects. One of those people who can either do what needs doing or is owed favors by someone who does. We are very lucky to have her on our team.
