Active in the Swing Dance Community Chapters throughout CT since May of 2000, I am the Founder and Director of The FairWestSwing Project and the local chapter of the Swing Dance Community serving the counties of Fairfield, Westchester and Putnam. I've served as local organizer as well as in multiple staff positions at two American Lindy Hop Championships. I've been most fortunate to have been introduced to Modern Lindy Hop by notable Swing & Blues Dance Instructor Noelle Gray and to have taken instruction from the great Frankie Manning. I've been called "a dance'n fool." Little do they know, I was a fool before I could dance! Guess the jokes on them!
You never stop learning in Swing.
Each & every one!
In Jan. 2005, I started the FairWestSwing Project to bring Swing back to the Fairfield / Westchester Area and to bridge the surrounding Swing Dance Communities in NY & CT. Beginners are very welcome at fairwestswing.com
Every dance has been a success! Even when attendance is less than expected, we make new friends and grow our Dance Community. It is the outstanding quality of the people who participate, which makes this project so enjoyable. You just cannot find nicer people to spend an evening with!
