You will be missed - In Pace Requiescat

It is with great  shock and sadness that we share with you news of the sudden passing of our friend, dance instructor,  dancer,  and very special lady:  Jenon Fleetwood.   (1952-2015).
Jenon has been a part of the Anchorage dance family for a long time, as a dance instructor teaching with Jim, as a director of the Alaska Dance group and as a fellow dancer. 

She had just moved to Florida with Jim, Debi, Sue, and Barb in September and was ready for a new chapter in her life in a sunnier climate.    

She will be missed by many and our hearts go out to her family and friends, and especially to her very close friends Sue, Jim, Debi and Barb.  

We hope there will be a memorial dance/get together for her in the very  near future.  We will post the details when we know more. (WCSA)

Here's what some of our students are saying about us....

"Back 2 Basics is a very unique team here in the Anchorage area.  I make my whole hearted recommendation for Roxanne and her husband and my perspective on dance instruction is very unique.  I come from a very well known family that ran various dance studios in the Hollywood area.  I never learned a single step because the family business was "hokey".  In light of that I sincerely love Back 2 Basics approach in so many ways.  They are confident in many forms of dance, but I came to them to learn the tango.  What was so unique about their methodology was that at the core of it they wanted to know why I wanted to learn this dance.  A lot of dance instructors will ask that question, but they will not really mean it and will not listen to your answer.  Roxanne, however, really focused on this aspect, thus their instruction was well thought out, well organized, presented well, clear, and most importantly for learning the tango, they did not assume that I came to class socially prepared to learn this dance.  That put them head and shoulders ahead of the pack.  They are outstanding at what they do, outstanding.  There are lots of folks who will tell you how long they have been doing it.  So what.  It isn't how long you do it; it is how well you do it.  I was a complete beginner and you will not find  better team for that anywhere."---TFA (Anchorage, AK)


"No where else in this city can you find instructors that actually teach you partnership in social dancing. Patrick and Roxanne actually teach dancers how to lead and follow so it makes sense." -----Lisa M. (Anchorage, AK)


"Wonder why those fancy moves you've learned aren't working, go see Patrick and Roxanne, they'll fix them." -----Lisa M. (Anchorage, AK)
