Joallyn Bohn

Joallyn began seriously studying ballroom dancing in 1995, although she had been studying and dancing for many years prior to 1995. Joallyn competed successfully in amateur International standard and American smooth ballroom dancing

throughout California for several years, progressing rapidly through Silver, Gold, Novice, and into Pre-Champion levels. Thereafter she decided to devote her skills to teaching and performing ballroom dancing locally, including performances at hospitals, nursing homes and retirement centers. She has also used her skills to teach the blind to ballroom dance. She has studied under world renowned ballroom dancers and instructors like Heather Smith and Victor Veyrasett, Stephen Cullip, Don Johnson and Kasia Kozak, Michael Mead and Toni Redpath, Jim and Jenell Maranto, and Ron Montez.

Joallyn spent her college years learning, doing, competing, coaching, and teaching gymnastics. She began assisting physical education teachers in elementary school and continued after college, both in the U.S. and Germany. She has also studied ballet, jazz, tap and other forms of theatre dance for over 30 years, competing with an adult jazz and tap company throughout California, as well as Las Vegas and Baja.

Joallyn currently teaches both group and private lessons in nearly all styles of partner dancing, both International and American style ballroom, Latin, and Night Club dances as well as East and West Coast Swing.

Do I need special footwear for Ballroom?

Beginner Dancers:

Smooth soled leather soles work well for beginners so they can easily turn and glide. Please no thick rubber sneakers if possible, regular men’s and women’s dress shoes work well. Closed toe shoes for women vs. strappy sandals are also best for beginners!

 

Intermediate/Advanced Dancers:

More advanced dancers wear suede bottom soles for turning and gripping, bring your true “ballroom” shoes if you own them! Shoes should be light weight vs. super thick and heavy soles. And to protect the floors from black marks, no shoes that are likely to leave these should be worn if at all possible.
