Having taught Swing and Blues for over 18 years and on three continents, John is ever ready to share his passion for dance and his latest investigations into connection and movement. The only thing that can compare to his love of dancing is his love of teaching and sharing his ideas about dance.
John spends an absurd amount of time every week thinking in-depth on the many aspects of dance. Like a scientist who looks deeper and deeper into the most fundamental parts of atoms, John searches deep into the constituent parts of partnered movement to see what can be found within and how can it tinkered with. To him, dance is a blend of physical exploration, musical interpretation and artistic expression.
Whether he is explaining fundamentals, exploring variations, or expounding theory, his lessons are sure to be fun, insightful and accessible, and leaves people wondering if what they just heard were dance lessons or life lessons.

"I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn partner dancing skills under the oh-so-skillful, patient and generous guidance of John Lozano over the past few years. His expertise as a teacher in creating lessons which invite and facilitate movement exploration in positive and challenging ways always ensure that I leave our lessons feeling gratified that i spend time and energy dancing." ~Philip J.
