I am Joo-Lee Stock and I LOVE teaching and dancing and music and . . . . I am a qualified teacher! Prior to starting up Lindy Jazz, I was a performing arts director in a secondary school. I now spend almost every day dancing and teaching adults with no dance experience to social dance. I am also a qualified coach and understand the problems that stop so many people from enjoying the experience of learning to dance.
It’s my passion for many years to share my skills so that as many people as possible could experience the fun of learning to dance. So, in 2007, I introduced swing dance classes to the northeast of England through my community dance company, Lindy Jazz. It started as a single class in Durham soon became a whole series of events including DJam, an annual dance festival attended by over 350 dancers from all over the world. My work also includes community dance exercise classes for the NHS through their ‘Arts into Wellbeing’ project as well as teaching actors with no dance experience to dance in only a few hours for TV dramas such as Joe Maddison’s War starring Robson Green & Kevin Whateley and also United starring David Tennant.
All this has given me a huge of amount of experience in transforming people’s experience of learning to dance. So, if you’re thinking you may have ‘Two Left Feet’ or finding it hard to learn when you’ve been to a dance class or if you are getting nervous about joining a dance class for the first time and wondering how you are going to get through it without stepping on someone's toes and if you think you can’t dance then I promise I can help to get you dancing.
