Athena Edison Lahm  | Portland, OR



Athena Edison-Lahm co-founded Barefoot Blues in January of 2010. She started partner dancing in 2005 and has been hooked ever after. But her love of dancing didn’t start there, no, her infatuation started before she could walk. Wearing nothing but her diaper, two-year-old Athena would hold on to the television set, watch Michael Jackson hypnotically and attempt to dance like him. Though she did not master the moonwalk right away she gained a love of dance that led her to study tap, jazz, ballet, modern, African and be a company member in such dance companies as iN.GAUGE Dance Company and Urban Arts.
