My Teaching Philosophy
“In her house, she hangs a sign that says ‘We don’t make mistakes, we do variations.’ Expect to be amazed by Campbell’s experience, but there’s no need to be intimidated. Campbell just wants to make the dance world a better place by changing her students’ lives every day.” – Juhie
“Campbell makes dance accessible and not intimidating.”
Why I Founded Austin Social Dance
Focus on social dance
You can learn practical social dance skills without the emphasis on performance and competition of ballroom dance studios.
Learn in a private space
If you’re not comfortable dancing in front of other people, you can relax while learning in my private home studio!
I want to get to know you and your unique background so I can tailor your lessons to your strengths and interests.
Confidence on any dance floor
Weddings. Country dance halls. Live music bars. Swing nights. Salsa clubs. Folk festivals. Your own living room!
Express your personality!
Country Two-Step, One-Step, Polka, and Waltz
East Coast Swing, Blues, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and West Coast Swing
Salsa, Tango, Foxtrot, Line Dancing, and more!
Get to Know Me
When did I start teaching dance?
While studying Computer Science at Stanford University. After working in tech, I decided that helping people learn to dance was the best job I could ask for!
Favorite dance style?
Blues invites freedom of expression, Tango appreciates subtlety and detail, and Waltz has a delicious flow. Each one allows me to express a different part of my personality!
Favorite dance partner?
My husband, whom I met dancing! I appreciate any partner who creates a comfortable connection and doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
Favorite place to dance?
Live music outside. There’s something magical about dancing to a band under blue skies or starlight!
Favorite activities off the dance floor?
Traveling, Yoga, Hiking, Cuddling my dogs, Practicing Spanish, Jigsaw puzzling
