Coming from different dance backgrounds, Ryan and Anna started on their blues dance journey together in 2013. Ryan has tap-danced from the age of 12, and Anna’s background was in dancing salsa, and Argentine tango, but now blues has taken over both of their lives!
Ryan and Anna travel extensively to learn, perform and compete - individually, as a couple, and as part of the Down and Outs blues troupe, which they have both been members of since its formation. They have won and placed in competitions in both the US and Europe, and have taught at international festivals such as the Spoonful and European Blues Invasion.
Academically trained, with over 30 years of teaching and mentoring experience between them, they love to encourage people in finding the tools they need to express themselves dancing blues and to geek out over the history, context and music of the dance they both love. Anna is also a blues DJ and loves to expose dancers to as wide a variety of blues music as possible - she loves the breadth of the genre and all the possibilities that this allows in the dance.
They are particularly interested in Blues Idiom Dances at the moment, and are looking forward to coming to Dublin to teach this material!
