Rodney and Joanna (NZ)
Rodney and Jo are the Principal Teachers of Feet with Heat in New Zealand, and Judges for the Kooly Kat Dance Championship. They are New Zealand's first (and currently only) professionally qualified FATD R'n'R teachers.
Rodney and Jo started dancing together in 1997 and have competed extensively for over 10 years. Each year they join the Gotta Swing teachers for a class so that students can learn from Rodney and Jo's expertese.
"I get a big kick out of teaching people and enjoy nothing more than witnessing the ‘penny drops’ moment of new students."
Both Jo and Rodney are fully qualified teachers in both Australia and New Zealand. Jo was one of New Zealands first professionally qualified dance teachers in two swing styles.
