Hewson hails from Walnut, California. I got involved with Dance the Bay because I love to dance and wish to see more social dancing in Berkeley. I initially started with Salsa but fell in love with West Coast Swing due to how creative and improvisation it is. I also particularly love the music and how you could dance to any song. I am currently teaching a West Coast Swing Decal and converting people into passionate Westies to build a community here in Berkeley.
