Katie took her
first swing class in 1998 and has been teaching at EUSDS with Jamie since 2000. She also teaches at Edinburgh Swing Dance Society
on a regular basis. She and Jamie make up the teaching and performance
team The Swing Doctors.
Musically trained from an early age, Katie has a particular
appreciation of rhythm and chord structure and plays a leading role in
classes on understanding the structure of swing music. She has taught
piano at various times and is experienced at teaching on a one-to-one
basis as well as at teaching larger groups.
Katie, like Jamie, prefers social (rather
dance and places great emphasis on lead-follow communication. She
particularly enjoys teaching beginners, and considers it a privilege to
help people dance their first ever steps. She is proud to carry on a
long-standing tradition of passing on the love and knowledge of swing
dance on a voluntary basis, in Edinburgh and elsewhere.
