John & Karen Sweeney

John & Karen Sweeney live in Ashford, Kent in the UK and dance many different dance styles regularly: Contra, Ceilidh, Barn Dance, Ceroc/LeRoc (Modern Jive), Square Dancing, Argentine Tango, Contra Waltz, West Coast Swing, Morris Dancing and more!

John has been dancing since he was 16 (yes, that is quite a long time ago!) and teaching various forms of dance since 1973.

Dancing has been a passion for Karen since she was inspired by the film "West Side Story". She has danced ever since, and now adapts the many influences gained from Modern Jive, West Coast Swing, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Ballroom, Salsa, Bachata, Urban/Street & Hip-Hop, Swing/Lindy and Blues into her dancing.

Karen and John have been dancing, demonstrating and teaching together since 2001 and love travelling and meeting dancers who, like them, are still looking for new styles and ideas.

You can read lots more about us, our calling and our workshops here.

John & Karen helped to get contra dancing going in Paris.
