Cathy Dacumos - Featured Instructor

Updated: July 11, 2015

Cathy Dacumos will be our featured instructor on Friday, July 24, at Swiss Park. Cathy and Claudio are regular attendees of Boots 'n' Buckles Friday night dances. Cathy will start the evening off at 7:30 by teaching Holy Cowgirl by Guyton Mundy, and her dancers have chosen five favorite dances that are sure to be played during the evening. They are:

  • American Kids
  • Celia
  • Rock & Roll King
  • Dear Future Husband
  • Telepathy

Cathy sent this description of how she got into line dancing and became an instructor:
"I have been line dancing since the spring of 2005, and teaching line dance since June of 2008. My husband, Claudio, and I began taking beginner classes with Evelyn Khinoo in Redwood City at the invitation and urging of some friends we had made through ballroom dancing. I was very reluctant to try it, since I had a perception (all too common!) that it was all country music, hats and cowboy boots….not my thing at all! I was convinced to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of music, the friendliness of the other dancers, and the sheer fun of it. We went to our first weekend dance in the fall of 2005, and it was very obvious to us that we would need to move up to an intermediate class if we wanted to do more than just dance Cruisin’ in the back of the room all night! We began intermediate classes in January of 2006, and were soon going regularly to dances with Country Quicksteppers, our local club. We have been hooked ever since. In December of 2007, I retired form my full-time job-I had worked 37 years as a mail carrier for the San Mateo Post Office. My husband was still working, so to fill some of my free time I decided to take some daytime line dance classes with John Bowen in Redwood City and San Carlos. I had been in his classes about 4 or 5 months when he approached me and said he was going to move to Hawaii and asked if I would like to take over teaching his classes. I had never considered such a possibility, but he encouraged and mentored me for a couple months, and I have been teaching ever since. It was definitely a case of something that was meant to be, I absolutely love teaching and have made so many great friends in the line dance community. Many of us, besides dancing together, socialize outside of dancing, and often travel together, including to line dance events. Claudio and I, along with many of our friends, have attended workshops in Palm Springs, Colorado, Oregon, and of course many here in Northern California, especially the “Keeping It In Line” event and Michael & Michele’s “ Boogie Til The Cows Come Home”. Our favorite event by far is the Las Vegas Dance Explosion, which we have been attending every November for about 7 years now. Last year we went with 45 of our friends and students…what a blast! I’m so grateful for the wonderful life that has opened up for me through line dancing, the joy of teaching, and the great friends. I’m especially grateful for the help, encouragement, and support of my husband, Claudio. Since his retirement from PG&E in 2010, he has been my partner in teaching, acting as my driver, my equipment manager, my “Sherpa” (hauling luggage & equipment) and my number one BRAT (back row assistant teacher)!"

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 another dance.
