ABOUT LAURENCE 

My name is Laurence Bonfoey and I am

 a Tucson Native. My love of dance began in 1974, when a friend invited me to a Country Western night club.

Watching amazing Dancers doing awesome footwork, spins and turns motivated me to learn more!

Everyone on the Dance floor was smiling, laughing and having fun. I was in Dancing Heaven!

 

So in 1975, I landed a full time job at Fred Astaire School of Dance!  I jumped into training class.

Determination, lots of practice, and my love of Music drove me!

I was trained in 10 dances, leading and following. Mans and lady's footwork. 

10 more patterns and spins followed!

Two years later, I received my certificate of completion 

which hangs on my wall to this day.

BACKGROUND

I taught dance at Pima Community College for 18 years. I also taught 1000's of classes in many Tucson clubs!

In addition, I taught for 10 years at the Maverick ~ King of Clubs.

 

In 1992, I opened The Bonfoey Studio of

Fine Art and Dance.

Located on a gorgeous 4 acres of land.

 

The building was 4000 sq ft! I installed a new 1000 sq ft floating Dance floor!

It was on 22nd street and Swan Road. Still there today. It is a Buddhist Monastery now!

Me and my staff of eight instructors  taught over 30 classes a week!!  

LOVE OF WESTERN DANCING

My special niche of dancing became Country Western. Private dance lessons are available 7 days a week. At

BONFOEY DANCE STUDIO
My passion and love of great Country Western music has inspired me to teach for over 48 Years!

DANCING WITH MY HORSE

When I am not teaching people, you will find me training my horse. She came to me as a young filly. I trained her using natural horsemanship methods.

Like dancing with humans, the two of us communicate with very light cues. We read each other's body language and move in harmony together.

Like Dancing should be!

 

I teach Footwork,Timing,and Rhythm.

 

Learn to lead and follow effortlessly!
