Bailey McCully has taught and performed across North America and Europe, and is currently based out of Seattle, WA. Her classes are fun, energetic, and, most importantly, student centered. 4 years as an educator has made pedagogical excellence both a passion and defining quality. Bailey always aims to create a class culture in which students feel safe to try, fail, and learn to become the best dancers they can be. While technique is always a component, Bailey focuses on teaching students about how they can move rather than how they should move. She loves to explore personal style and creativity with her students, using the music as the constant source of guidance and inspiration. Just as jazz music lets you hear the personality of the musician, Bailey believes that jazz dancing should reflect personality of the dancer. Though partner dancing is near and dear to her heart, Bailey also has a great love for Solo Jazz. Dancing with a partner or dancing solo, Bailey exudes the joy of jazz with every step.
