Tresne Hernandez has been bouncing and grooving ever since her brother first brought her to a swing dance in 2006. Then, in 2008, she fell in love - with blues dancing! Since then, her love has extended to Waltz, Contra, West African, Ecstatic, Contact Improv, and beyond. She delights in sharing her love of dance, and has been teaching since 2009. She is constantly amazed at the incredible opportunity dance gives us to connect with each other and be in community. Currently living in Oakland, CA, she hosts and teaches at a blues/fusion dance (Shades of Blues) in San Francisco. You can also find her miming and clowning, frolicking in the redwood forests, and leading improv workshops and theater of the oppressed gatherings.
