Nathan Foreman

, aka ThatDanceGuy is, without a doubt, the most eclectic and interesting teacher you will ever take a lesson from. A partnership genius and a legend in his own mind, Nathan has been teaching social dance for nearly 20 years, in three different languages and in four different institutions for the criminally insane. His teaching style is very connection based, striving to develop true communication between leader and follower, between dancers and spectators, between body and mind, and between Earth and Alpha Centauri. When you take lessons from him, you are continually rewarded as you find the difficult becoming easy, and yet challenged as you realize suddenly that the easy is actually difficult.
But seriously, Nathan was trying his best to learn Balboa back before anyone outside of LA had even heard of it. And now that people have heard of it and it's finally beginning to get the attention it deserves internationally, he's making sure that it gets the attention it deserves locally. Sure, everybody in Amsterdam does Bal every day. But we don't live in Amsterdam. So it's up to us to make it happen here.
