Reviews & Testimonials

Catrine is an amazing dancer and instructor. I've watched her for years. Catrine can take any level of dancer and help them go to the next level. She can dissect a movement and walk through it explaining the position of feet, legs, and arms such that we can understand where we need to be at the appropriate beat in a dance routine. Catrine helped me hear the beat! Dawn Stiles (student)

With her vast swing dance knowledge and experience, I can always count on Catrine to teach a great class. I really admire her dance style and the natural, effortless way she moves--always authentic and true to the original classic style of Lindy Hop. Add to this her fun and zany attitude and you get a wonderful experience which is not only informative and educational, but fun and entertaining as well. Ken Watanabe (Organizer & Teacher)

Actions speak louder than words and I have been taking classes with Catrine at Cat's Corner for over two years and try to arrange my schedule to miss as few classes as possible. I like the setting -- a Mission street jazz club with old posters and movie clips of swing dancing on the TV's and good bands and dancing after the classes -- but most important for me has been the instruction that I have received. The classes are small. You get individual tips and help but you not only learn "the moves" you learn to make them look good... Peter Radcliff (Philosophy Professor and Lindy Hopper)

Private classes

A private class is a very good tool to learn a dance form. You have one on one time with the teacher, you save time and you decide the tempo of the class. People come to me of different reasons but here are some examples.
- you are getting married and need to learn a few steps fast
- you are taking group classes but want to check in with your teacher that you are on the right track
- you don’t like big classes
-you can’t commit to one class and want to have a flexible schedule
