Dance Background
Tanya Clayton-Godfrey began studying ballroom and swing dance in 1994, while Wade Godfrey began in 1996. Both studied under the guidance of Jerry Blemke (Dance Quest), Pat Sims (Northland Dance), and Percell St. Thomass (Academie de Danse). We have enjoyed representing each of these organizations and the Ballroom Dance Club of Fairbanks in numerous public performances throughout the community. In 1997, we had a unique opportunity to participate in competitive ballroom dance.

Teaching Expertise
In 2003, Wade and Tanya were invited by the Ballroom Dance Club of Fairbanks (BCDF) to become dance instructors and share their love of ballroom dance with the greater Fairbanks community. We have been pleased to be able to teach with the BCDF for several years. In 2010, we made a change of venue and began teaching at The Artisan’s Courtyard.  

Areas of Experience
Foxtrot, Waltz, East Coast Swing, American Tango, Rumba, Cha Cha, Argentine Tango, Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, International Waltz, International Foxtrot, and International Quickstep.

We are grateful to all of our dance instructors for sharing their knowledge and expertise with us. In turn, we feel privileged to be able to do the same for our students. We warmly invite you to drop by and experience the exciting world of ballroom and swing dancing for yourselves!
