***************************


ANDREW MATTESON
Andrew teaches the dance lesson and will also DJ.  Here's his bio:
Andrew started dancing 18 years ago when his parents decided he was going to learn country western dance.  He loved dance immediately, and through an ensuing series of adventures, joined a Native American dance troupe with which he performed for six years during which time he did over 300 performances around the world. He was introduced to lindy hop and blues dance 8 years ago and has been dancing it regularly since.  He also has experience in Argentine tango, west coast swing and hip hop.  His teaching focuses on creating great connection as the foundation of "feel good" dances.


Currently he pays rent in New York, but travels a great deal for work.  When not dancing, he does research in mathematical biology for drug development.

JEANETTE HOLMES
Jeanette is also DJing the night.  She is a JookJoint favorite!  Here she is in her own words:
I DJ regularly for blues and west coast swing dances, and I love it! My background in west coast swing influences my blues, both in terms of playing music and in terms of dancing.  It's great to be part of a community that brings together people from many different background (such as lindy, blues, westie).  To a DJ, there's nothing better than a great mix.  :-)
And we agree! Welcome back to JookJoint Jeanette!
