Michael, a full time dancer in NYC, brings an exuberant energy and joy to every project, whether it's teaching classes worldwide or performing in renowned theaters. With his partner Evita Arce, their combined resumes span the globe from Dubai to the UK, Sweden to Australia! Evita and Michael were the featured Lindy Hop couple in the 2008 Japan Broadway tour of SWING! They have performed at The Rose Theatre and The Kennedy Center with Wynton Marsalis and The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Commercials and other television appearances have popped up frequently for Evita and Michael since they advanced to finals in Las Vegas on season 3 of FOX's So You Think You Can Dance -- the only Lindy Hop couple to do so.

Thanks to Ryan Francois & Jenny Thomas, in 2003, Evita and Michael were introduced to each other while working with Ryan's company in Los Angeles. Since then, Evita and Michael have been members of Swing Xtreme and have performed at The Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Camp Savoy, and at the Lyric Theater in the West End of London.

Michael and Evita have won awards at several national Swing events, most notably their 1st place wins in the Cabaret Divisions at ALHC and ILHC. Michael and Evita are recognized for their ability to combine technical feats with phenomenal dancing and theatrical storytelling.

Currently, the two teach regular classes at Dance Manhattan and continue to travel the world. As teachers, Michael and Evita emphasize anatomy and efficient use of the body. Connecting movements and clearly projecting direction help create their lead and follow technique. Above all other descriptions, one will surely say that Michael and Evita are inspiring to watch and a possess a warm welcome to any student of Lindy Hop.
