Before their two days of swing workshops at SSBC, Gary McIntyre & Susan Kirklin will be at Loafers Beach Club tonight for a dance meet n greet. Come see what the fuss is all about. Or visit their website www.GarySusanDance.com.
Note: there is an admission fee for Loafers, space is very limited at this venue, and the couple will be present later in the evening, usually 9-10 pm, after dancing is well underway.
Gary and Susan will also be at the Southern Star Ballroom Three Ring Circus dance connection Saturday night January 28.
Gary and Susan are unique in that they compete and have been successful on three separate circuits: Country, Ballroom, and West Coast Swing. They are World Professional Smooth Finalists, UCWDC Classic Masters World Champions, Classic and Showcase Swing Champions, and U.S. Open Swing Cabaret Champions.
Prior to dancing together, Gary was a multi-time UCWDC World Champion and toured as a dance captain for the Original Broadway Show Swing. He was a choreographer for the Academy Award winning film Brokeback Mountain, the dance double to the lead actor in Love 'n Dancing and also appeared as a dancer in the Jennifer Lopez/Richard Gere version of Shall We Dance. Susan was a U.S. Swing and Cabaret Champion.
