This week we have special coach getting ready to join our studio to teach private and group sessions in both of our locations in Napa and Santa Rosa, CA. Jimmy Mulligan is from the Chicagoland area and specializes in not only American Smooth but, West Coast Swing, and Hustle.
We had the pleasure of doing a little Q&A with Jimmy.
Here’s what he had to share in reply to some questions from our students:
Q: When did you first start to dance?
A: Jan 5th, 1994.
Q: What is your favorite dance right now?
A: I only get 1?!?!😉. American Smooth Viennese Waltz
Q: Who’s your biggest inspiration?
A: Hmmmm... my family (daughter). AM mentor - Jill DeMarlo. I have a lot of favorite dancers tho...
Q: How long do you practice each day?
A: Well I teach 50-70 lessons a week but when I was competing probably about 15-20 hours a week in addition to the dancing I was doing in my lessons and training at the gym...
Q: What was your favorite shining moment?
A: In life - when my daughter was born but dance wise- I’ve had a few... mostly when my students have reached their goals...
Q: What’s your favorite music to listen to right now?
A: Actually I can answer this one! Down Tempo and deep house (Serious XM Chill) Basically really good contemporary hustle music! 😉
Now that you got to learn a little bit about Jimmy, we hope you can get to know him even better when he comes this week.
Jimmy is an amazing person to work with and we feel so lucky to have him join us. If you haven’t had a chance to sign up for a private coaching session or his Master Class, check with your local studio’s front desk to see if there is still room available.. Spots are going quick!
