Andrew Sutton

Dance Ninjas Founder

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]Hi, my name is Andrew Sutton and I’m the founder of Dance Ninjas.

At Dance Ninjas, we work with people who want to take their dancing, teaching, and/or dance scene to the next level.  People who know that they can always improve and aren’t afraid to ask for help.

The goal is to provide you with the top, most researched, tested, and proven content to improve your dancing, teaching, and/or scene growth.

In order to do this, I’ve traveled to 231 cities in 35 countries to teach and research dance with some of the best dancers, teachers, and organizers in the world from all sorts of different backgrounds from Lindy Hop to Ballroom, Blues, Fusion, Salsa, Tango, and many other dance forms.

And to be clear, I wasn’t always a “good” dancer.  In fact, I started out as a dancer that was so bad, people actually warned others NOT to dance with me.

Of course, I have always been passionate about developing my dance skills and so it wasn’t long before one of those same people (who warned everyone) eventually became one of my dance partners, I went on to win 2nd place at the World Lindy Hop Championships (and over 6 other national 1st place competitions) and now I have the honor of teaching all over the world and hanging out with the best of the best in all sorts of different dance forms.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1419773652545{padding-top: 10px !important;background-color: rgba(237,237,123,0.91) !important;*background-color: rgb(237,237,123) !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

As Seen On…

And…

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]I believe:

  • The way we learn to dance can have a huge affect on the rest of our lives.
  • If your improvement as a dancer does not coincide with an increase in the overall amount of amazing dances you experience…it’s time to change the way you are learning.
  • There is a Universal Learning Method that will improve all your dancing with every partner you encounter and to almost every song you ever hear (if you use it).
  • Taking action is a key aspect to having more amazing dances (and lives) and we are often only limited by ourselves and our thoughts that keep us from taking action (but those can also be easy to overcome).
  • Every dance = a relationship…and by improving one, we can also improve the other.
  • No matter what level you are at, you can always make a “quantum leap” in your dancing.
  • Seek not to imitate the master but instead, seek what the master sought.  And remember, our D’ancestors didn’t do A dance, they danced!
  • You can learn from anyone and sometimes the gems are hidden in unlikely places.

It’s because of this last belief that you will see me constantly taking classes from BOTH the best of the best AND the newbie teachers in a variety of different dance forms (and I have discovered some amazing gems along the way that I will share with you).

How & Why I Started Dance Ninjas

As I take classes and discuss dance with hundreds of top notch instructors all over the world, even the best of the best often seem to have opposing beliefs on the way you “should” dance.  

So some of the techniques you learn from one instructor often don’t work very well when you dance with someone who learned from a different instructor, even if both instructors were teaching the same dance form!  Sometimes, it can even be frustrating to dance with someone who learned from a different instructor!

After experiencing this for a short while, I thought to myself, “There has to be a fundamental set of concepts that you can use to have more amazing dances with everyone instead of just improving with people who dance similar to the way you learned”…

…and so began my search for the Universal Learning Method that would include fundamentals that give you more amazing dances with everyone.

I started by searching for this in Lindy Hop, but it didn’t take long before I realized that if I truly wanted to have amazing dances with everyone, the fundamentals had to go beyond Lindy Hop and work in every style of dance. 


Watch us *attempt* to dance to a variety of different songs.  We definitely aren’t perfect, and I probably should have chosen a different outfit, but we do a pretty good job considering we didn’t know what songs were going to play or when they would transition. You can skip the first 19 seconds. Favorite transitions at 1:09 & 2:09.

Benefits of Dance Ninjas

All our lessons are developed from Dance Ninjas Universal Learning Method and are now improving dancers’ skills in Ballroom, Blues, Country, Folkdans, Fusion, Lindy Hop, Salsa, Tango, West Coast Swing, and more and more dance forms everyday (even ones that I’ve never done).

Dance Ninjas is where I share everything I’ve discovered (and continue to discover) as I travel to over 231 cities in 35+ countries teaching and studying with the best of the best to figure out what are the most efficient and effective ways to experience more and more amazing dances with everyone.  

That way, you don’t have to make all the mistakes I did (and yes, I made plenty along the way).

And you can get a bunch of these ideas for free (and of course, we have a bunch of awesome paid stuff too)!
