Welcome! I'm Julie, your hostess and primary instructor. Since all classes are on hiatus until further notice, I am pleased to invite you to my virtual dance classes. In addition, Everett Cable TV recorded my two classes, so you can practice line dance and Healthy-Steps any time you want. Links are below. And I just recorded new classes, so stay tuned!


BREAKING NEWS: You've probably see me dancing with those strange socks over my shoes. those are Dance Socks, and they have saved my feet. I can now stay in my sneakers and dance on both carpet and any type of flooring without sticking. My friends at The Dance Socks have graciously given me a personal code for 10% off any order. If you are dancing/exercising at home on carpet or sticking to the floor in your sneakers, The Dance Socks are the perfect solution! Go to their website at www.thedancesocks.com and put in the code JulieK

ANOTHER CHANCE TO DANCE OUTSIDE! Saturday, September 26, 4-6 pm

Our first dance in July was a such a success that we are doing it again! On Saturday, September 26, 4-6 pm (note the earlier time due fall equinox), we'll be dancing in the parking lot of the Wesley United Methodist Church 보스톤감리교회, 100 Winthrop Street, Medford. The lot is located across the street, at the corner of Chester Street. You can park on Chester Street.

Please wear your mask and your sneakers, and bring your own water.

Suggested donation is $10 (see below for sliding scale), which you can pay in advance on PayPal, or that evening with cash or credit card. Also, kindly bring something non-perishable to put into the micro-pantry on site.


So push back the couch, roll back the rug, move the kitchen table, and get ready to dance! In an effort to keep us sane, get us moving again, and entertain while we practice “social gathering at a distance,” I'll be teaching and reviewing some new dances, along with some oldies but goodies.

About Julie Kaufmann Dancin'

From the crowds at First Night Boston to an intimate country wedding, in nightclubs and offices, at Boston black tie fund raisers and outdoor picnics, on college campuses and Alzheimers residences, people all around Boston have been enjoying my lessons.  

Even better, they have been getting up and dancing!

Dancing knows no barriers: young and old, men and women, athletes and couch potatoes, singles and couples, all can participate.You can do it in heels or wingtips, runners or boots; you can wear pants or a dress, suits or sweats. Dancing is easy, and everyone can enjoy it. Everyone--even the watchers--will leave with a smile.


I offer a wide range of dance instruction programs in the greater Boston MA area, including group classes, private lessons, parties and events, wedding choreography, workplace exercise, senior programs, and movement class for cancer survivors and those with other chronic illnesses. Please click on the types of programs link to see descriptions of all my offerings.

About Julie

I have been teaching country western and swing dancing in the Boston area since 1990. Before that, I took 12 years of ballroom and swing classes with many of the best instructors in Boston, including Ron Gursky, Gail Rundlett, Dan Radler and Suzanne Hamby. I have done teacher training courses with Mary Hoedeman, Skippy Blair, Dave Getty, and Barry Durant. I continue to take lessons to improve my dancing so I can offer you the latest moves and technique tips.
