Henrietta Plessas grew up with the love of dancing starting from a very young age taking Ballet classes. At 16 she moved from England to San Francisco where she discovered ballroom dancing. At the age of 18 I started dancing at the Metronome Ballroom in San Francisco, and at the age of 20 began teaching dance; Ballroom, Latin and Swing. After a lengthy hiatus, she resumed teaching swing , ballroom and Latin at Dance Arts ballroom in San Rafael. Along the way she developed a passion for West  Coast Swing. We are lucky that Henrietta has fulfilled her dream of living in her Twain Harte cabin which she has been coming to for years. She says:  “I can’t wait to share my love of teaching and dancing with you all and hope you’ll soon join me on the dance floor.”
