Past-Chair


Dance Instructor

This is a picture of Jim in the 21st Century. Last century Jim was in the Army, blew things up and jumped out of planes. In this century, Jim uses the skills he learned in the 1900s to teach people how to dance…together, in pairs, Ballroom and Latin style.

Jim realized that teaching dance is a lot like teaching drill, but is generally a lot more fun. Since then he has danced on stage, taught in various bars and taught in a few dance studios. Jim is well-respected in the social dance community and has been the lead instructor for the MUN Ballroom and Latin Dance Club (MUN BLDC) for over 10 years. He’s been a progressive advocate for dance in the province and a participant of DanceNL programming in the past. 

Recently Jim has put together programing and instructional videos for the NL Waltz.
