April Barker

Choreographer and Dance Instructor

April’s love for dance began, as it does with many little girls, when her parents signed her up for a “creative movement” class at a local dance school. She took lessons and performed in recitals for 10 years, then decided to rekindle her love for dance in her 20’s by taking private ballroom lessons. It was through these lessons that she met her future husband Zeke, whose southern roots and shared love for dance eventually led them both straight into the world of Country Line Dancing! In 2014, April and Zeke started Boston’s most successful weekly line dance night at Loretta’s Last Call near Fenway Park. She was eventually inspired to try her hand at choreographing her own dances. While April and Zeke now mostly perform and teach at private parties and events, you can still find them on the floor at Loretta’s and always sharing new dances on their YouTube channel, Grapevine to the Right.
