Ted’s Full bio

Ted Maddry started teaching dance in 2007, but he’s a born teacher.  Ted runs a fun, lighthearted classroom and delights in working with first-time dancers, international instructors, and the range in between.

As a teacher, Ted has helped thousands of students change their dancing in places like Norway, Boston, D.C., Raleigh, Las Vegas, London, Columbia, Chicago, Austin, Holland, Denver, Vancouver, Portland, St. Louis, Seattle, Scotland, and San Francisco.

In his classes, he will challenge you to develop dance technique, experiment and take risks in your dancing, while maintaining a comfortable and entertaining classroom environment. You will gain new perspectives, unique material, and sometimes you will even learn how the same methods you use to improve your dancing can also be used to improve your non-dance life.

Ted has also started and run weekly dance events in Seattle and San Francisco, as well as Camp Blues. His passion is inspiring people to engage more fully, as dancers and in their lives.
