One of the Reasons we LOVE what we do!

We continually hear how fortunate we are to do something we love, all around the world. That is so true, but sometimes it is the little things that mean even more. While in Medford Oregon, at another great workshop weekend, I had the pleasure to dance with 12 year old Isabeau Kennedy. This video was caught at the very end. Tatiana and I both started at the same age, and it means so much to see other young dancers finding West Coast Swing. It was great having her, along with all the other juniors, attending our workshops. Thanks to everyone who came this past weekend.

We are in a rush to prepare for dancing at the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia this weekend. What an honor. We'll definitely fill you in when we return. LOTS TO DO!! Our flight leaves tomorrow!

  1. Hi Jordan and Tatiana,

    Isabeau so loved dancing with you Jordan!!

    Thank you for your wonderful workshop in Medford, Oregon. I wanted to say that the two of you are some of the most gracious and kind people I have ever met. Your genuine and generous way about you came through to your teaching and that will always be remembered. The 11 youths that attended this workshop were not only inspired by what they learned, but also by the humble nature of the two of you. We are so fortunate to have such positive roll models in two world class professionals such as yourselves.

    Isabeau and her partner, Bronson Samel-Garloff, will be entering their first competition in February 2010 at the Sacramento Capital Swing Dance Convention. We look forward to seeing the two of you again.

    With Much Sincerity and Appreciation,
    Blair Ritchie
