After taking up residency in Melbourne Andy started dancing in 2004. Andy loves teaching at North Melbourne every Thursday with his wife Shob Nambiar, and loves creating a fun, playful environment for all to explore their dancing. Andy’s down-to-earth teaching style tends to relax those around him and his passion for swing dancing ends up rubbing off on his students.

He loves dancing with everyone from beginners to teachers, and tries to leave his partner smiling by the end of each song.

He’s been very privileged to teach with an amazing teacher, dancer and choreographer Shob Nambiar, as well as many other great SP teachers over the years. Australian Teaching/Workshop credits include: Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Launceston, Hobart, And Andy and Shob have taught in Auckland (NZ) and Victoria (Canada) too. Andy has also taught performance troupes in Sydney and Melbourne with the talented trio of Shob Nambiar, Noni Clarke, and Cathie Gough.
