Award-winning swing dance instructors Bobby and Kate have taught throughout the Southeast and in Paris--as well as having taught separately in Cleveland, London, and Utah. They teach Lindy Hop (Un-styled, Hollywood, Savoy Speed, and Hand to Hand Combat), Balboa, Collegiate Shag, dips, tricks, aerials and more. They also teach such classic swing jazz dances as the Whitey's Big Apple and Dean Collin's Shim Sham. It is their personal mission to keep swing dancing fun, comfortable, attractive, and not deadly. Kate Hedin (pronounced "Heh-DEEN") has instructed and performed under the award winning couple Marty and Val, and has learned from such amazing Balboa and Lindy follows as Sylvia Sykes, Jen Urich, Carla Heiny and more. Aside from a love of both social and performance Lindy Hop, it is her passion to develop the opportunities for follows in Balboa and learn every follow's footwork variation possible. She has not only learned a large catalog of moves from other great Balboa follows, she has also invented many popular variations. Bobby & Kate have won: 1st place, Detroit Balboa Championships 2004 3rd place, Eastern Balboa Championships 2004 Finalist, All Balboa Weekend Championships, Cleveland, 2004. Kate has won:1st Place, Invitational Jack and Jill, Eastern Bal Championships, 2004. 1st Place, Pink City Balboa Jack and Jill 2004. 1st Place, America Open Lindy (Jack and Jill), 2004. 1st place, All Balboa Weekend All Gal Balboa competition, 2004 (as leader and follower). 1st, Great Lakes Balboa Competition, 2004. 2nd Place, Pink City Balboa Jack and Jill Competition, 2003.
