Even People with Too Left Feet Can Learn to Dance!

Welcome! You've reached the homepage of "Too Left Feet" and social dance instructors Allen and Edie Driskill. We specialize in lessons for beginning social dancers, but also teach more advanced students.


Last updated March 27th, 2021. Yep, I'm alive, awake, enthusiastic, and still sorta in business after 17 years; go figure!
The vaccines are Here!  The end may be near!
Allen is still not scheduling classes or lessons.
Edie is online at https://ediedriskill.as.me/ 

  Hi! I'm Allen Driskill. By day I'm a mild-mannered Computer Programmer for a major metropolitan tech company. But when afternoon comes I'm a dancer and a dance teacher.

  I teach ballroom dances like Foxtrot, Waltz, Quickstep and Tango.  I give lessons in East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, and Hustle.  I also teach Latin dances like Cha-Cha, Rumba, Meringue, Samba, Mambo and Salsa.  I can even get you started in Nightclub Two Step, Country Two Step or Polka.  

  I teach in and around Worthington, Ohio, USA.  Many of my students come from Columbus, Ohio, and its suburbs: Dublin, Granville, Hilliard, Upper Arlington, and Westerville.  In a world of young, thin, handsome dance instructors, I think I stand out from the crowd!

 I am a graduate of MSU1, OSU2, and WU3. I am also a proud alumnus of, and certified fully baked by, MIT4 and FFSDA5.  I have been trained in Agile.   (I love footnotes because they sound like they should have something to do with dancing, but they don't.) My real credentials are being a dance student myself since 1986, and a dance teacher since 2004.
 I only teach Social Dancing: easy-going, non-competitive dancing that's just for fun, exercise, and socializing. It's a great hobby, a wonderful excuse to spend time with your Significant Other, and the ticket to membership in a huge world-wide community of friendly and fun-loving people.

My wife, Edie Milligan Driskill, is also a dancer and a teacher. If I'm "a little bit ballroom" then she's "a little bit country."7  She prefers line-dancing, partner-pattern dancing, and country lead-follow dances like Two-Step.  Check out her line-dance video website: www.LineLessons.com.   For ongoing local linedance activities and classes, see her meetup group: Country Done Right.

I teach Sunday afternoon group classes at my home, and private lessons on weekday afternoons/evenings.  We have also taught at many of the social dance venues around Columbus, Ohio, like the dances at the Elizabeth Blackwell Center and the weekly swing clubs. We also host private dances and parties for schools, churches and other groups of people afraid to dance. There's more info about all our classes on the Dance Events page.

Anyway, on with the show. You probably want to click on one of those links down the left to get started. I hope you have fun on the site, and I hope to see you in one of my classes soon.
