Cathy Footer

Sending her daughter off to college in 2001 left Cathy looking for entertainment and a way to make new friends. The search led to her first dance class (Samba) and a large dance family. Along the way she has learned social dance skills in Country, Swing, Latin and Ballroom.

One of Cathy’s first instructors, Doug Henry of InStep Dance in Tacoma, WA, invited her to partner with him and was instrumental in her introduction to teaching. The rest they say is history. Over the last 11 years she has had the pleasure of teaching in the Tacoma, Tukwila, Auburn and Seattle areas. “I am excited to be back on staff with the team at Northwest Dance. We’re gonna have some fun!”
