Andree moved to the Northwest from San Luis Obispo in 1980 and loves all it offers, including dance! Aside from early Ballet lessons, she took up Swing and Lindy Hop when living in Port Townsend and enjoyed helping with the classes. After returning to Seattle in 2013, she bought a lesson package from Arthur Murray. She was then introduced to Zydeco and wound her way through lessons with Mary Lee Lykes, Sean Donovan, and Ari Levitt, finding her way to NW Dance Network. She has a background as an instructor trainer in kayaking, is a ski instructor, has a bachelor’s degree from the Jackson School of International Studies, and is a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Bain.
