Care4You is honored to have EZ Living and Swing N Country as our Community Partners! Katie and John, what a testimony you both are in your endeavor to reach out to the public, to assist when needed and to touch lives with your love of the dance!
“EZ Living is the private practice of Katie Gundersen, MS, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist. And Swing N Country is the dance teaching business operated by Katie and her husband, John Watson. These two businesses often go hand in hand by helping local citizens in and near Monrovia maintain their independence and zest for living. Katie, and her husband John, met while on a competition Country dance team. Soon after they married, they began teaching dance together under the name of Swing N Country.
Aside from their group classes held at the Monrovia Community Center, they also offer private lessons in their home studio. They teach American Social Ballroom dances (Fox Trot, Waltz, Rumba, Cha Cha, Night Club Two Step, both East and West Coast Swing.) And they still love to teach Country Two Step and the old tried and true Country Line Dances. They work with engaged couples on their ‘first dance,’ and have often worked with ‘father/daughter’ as well as the entire bridal party.
They know because of Katie’s Occupational Therapy background, they have been successful teaching many people who were ready to ‘give up’ when they struggled trying to learn to dance. One of their 90 year young students says, “If it wasn’t for dance, I’d be gone by now.”
