Jake and Taletha have been dancing together for four years. In this short time, they have confidently progressed in the Professional Nasde Classic Swing Division. Their most recent placements include 3rd at Dallas Dance, 2nd at Swing Fling, and 5th at Boogie By the Bay. They are now three-time US OPEN Swing Finalists and are currently competing at the All-Star and Champions levels in Jack & Jill and Strictlys.
Jake and Taletha are full-time instructors at Uptown Dance and Go-Dance Studios in Austin, Tx where they enjoy teaching a wide range of partner dances including Ballroom, CW, Latin Social, and Swing.
They are actively growing Austin's local WC Swing community through weekly WC Swing Styling classes, social dances and outings.
In their instruction, they put an emphasis on Teach it, Walk it, Dance it!
Our goal is for our students to walk away confident with more than just an understanding of the moves and concepts.
