25 years ago, I was a ballroom student - struggling to learn complicated steps. I thought to myself, there had to be an easier way. When my studio went out of business, I took the "horse by the reins" and reinvented ballroom dance classes. I made them affordable, so everyone could have a chance to learn to dance. I held lessons in several locations - so my students would not have to travel far and wide to learn to dance. And last but not least, I made them casual. Jeans are the dress of choice - and low heeled shoes, that slide. I started teaching lessons with Parks and Recreation departments, and from there started renting space. Then I started teaching private lessons, at a reasonable cost, with only one teacher (me) and a couple on the floor. This was unheard of in dance studios. Sometime, there would be 4 teachers on the floor at one time at the location where I was taking lessons. Soon, I had to invent a name for my "studio" and 2 Left Feet was born. If I had a nickel for everytime a student said to me, "I probably can't learn to dance, I have two left feet." I would be rich!!
So, that's my story. Inexpensive ballroom dance lessons, with casual attire in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
Don't get me wrong - I also teach competitive students, but the majority of my classes and private lessons are students that just want to learn how to dance.
