Cathy Dacumos - Featured Instructor

Posted: August 11, 2016

Cathy Dacumos will be our featured instructor on Friday, September 9 . She will start the evening off at 7:00 by teaching "You Let Me Shine". This will take the full half-hour, so please come on time if you want to learn this new dance! Cathy and her students have chosen the following five favorite dances that are sure to be played during the evening:

  • Silhouettes
  • Blackpool by the Sea
  • Solo Amor
  • Sinatra & Chardonnay
  • Lay Low

A brief bio of Cathy and Claudio:
Cathy & Claudio are both retired from full-time careers. Cathy worked as a mail carrier for the U S Postal Service for 37 years, retiring in late 2007. Claudio worked as a meter reader for P G & E for 37 years, retiring in 2010. They met in 1994 through friends. About a year after meeting they began taking ballroom dance lessons, and continued ballroom dancing for about 10 years. In the Spring of 2005, some friends they’d met through ballroom dancing persuaded them to try line dancing. They began with beginner classes with Evelyn Khinoo. After about 6 months, some people they’d met in Evelyn’s class invited them to a Quicksteppers dance. They knew almost nothing, and spent most of the evening watching, but the people were so nice and welcoming, and after seeing how much fun everyone was having, they decided to move up to the intermediate class so they could join the fun. They started coming to Quicksteppers dances regularly in 2006. After Cathy retired at the end of 2007, she decided to take a few daytime classes, since Claudio was still working. She started taking classes in Redwood City and San Carlos with John Bowen. A few months later, John approached Cathy to say he was moving to Hawaii, and asked if she would like to take over the classes. Cathy had never given a thought to teaching line dancing, and her first reaction was to ask John “Do you think I could do it?” He believed she could, so after some very helpful advice and mentoring from John, Cathy began teaching Monday mornings in Redwood City and Thursday afternoons in San Carlos in June of 2008. When Claudio retired in the summer of 2010, he became her helper….driver, equipment manager, “back row” assistant, etc. Soon after that Cathy was asked to cover Evelyn’s Thursday evening classes for a few months, and eventually Evelyn turned over those classes to Cathy permanently. What a surreal feeling to be teaching the class they started in as beginners only a few years earlier! Cathy & Claudio love teaching line dancing, attending local dances, and socializing and traveling with all the great people they’ve met through this wonderful community of dancers.

As usual, students of our featured instructors are admitted at the discount price of $8, and those attending a club dance for the first time are given a free pass good for a future dance.
