Jennifer began couples dancing in the fall of 2002. Thomas was drug to a line dance class with a coworker in 2004 where he met Jennifer, his future wife. Jennifer opened the Lessons in Dance studio in February 2006, they were married in March 2006, and they have been teaching swing and country dance in the Treasure Valley ever since.

They offer private and group lessons in West Coast Swing, Night Club Two Step, Country Two Step, Hustle, Cha-Cha, Polka, and East Coast Swing throughout the Treasure Valley. 

Personal Attention To Detail Is Awesome...

Jennifer and Thomas are amazing instructors. In every class I feel like I've gotten personal attention to "lock in" the learning. What I most appreciate is her technical abilities of making sure I have my "basics" down so I have a good foundation to grow from.
