Joan Walton

Vintage Dance Teacher and Choreographer

Joan Walton has taught classes for 15+ years in Ragtime, ‘20's, ‘30's, and 19th Century dance at Vintage Dance workshops across the USA, as well as in Australia and the Czech Republic. She was Assistant Director and dancer with Richard Powers' Cincinnati "Flying Cloud Vintage Dance Troupe" for 10 years. She performed with the Troupe all over the country, including performances at the Smithsonian and on the ABC-TV mini-series "North and South."

Teaching on the faculties of several universities has produced opportunities to choreograph Vintage Dances, Musical Theatre and award-winning Opera productions throughout the United States. Joan received a Master’s Degree in Dance Education from Stanford University and is currently teaching, choreographing and residing in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Joan was introduced to the Colorado vintage dance community in June 2004 when she taught social dance from the 1870’s -1920’s at the Step Back In Time weekend in Silverton. Summer of 2005 will find her teaching at Stanford's Swing Jam and the Paris Vintage Dance Week.

Joan's high energy, focused teaching style, and pre-class warm-ups have become well known to vintage dancers over the years. As a teacher, her strengths lie in her ability to communicate movement concepts to all levels of learners with energy and humor. A keen observer of learning styles, Joan has an ongoing interest in understanding the many ways that people learn to dance.

We are delighted that Joan will be joining us in Denver for what promises to be an informative, energizing, fun-filled weekend.
