Pat took up partner dancing in the 90s under the sweet tutelage of Nancyanna and Walter Dill, the founders of Living Traditions Dance, which later became NW Dance Network. She had never danced but soon caught the bug, made many friends, and learned how wonderful it feels to share the music with a partner. Walter and Nancyanna’s dedication to social dancing, and to teaching non-dancers to feel comfortable and joyful on the dance floor, spawned the amazing and unique dance scene we now enjoy in Seattle. She is so happy to help carry on this tradition.
Pat has been a nurse for over 40 years. In addition to dancing, she also enjoys singing in an a cappella group and garage band. In this CovidTime, she’s taken up birding. She has 3 grandchildren. Life is full.
