Instructor Bio

Highly regarded for his teaching skills, Bill's instruction has had a profound influence on the Swing & Lindy Hop scene for the past 14 years. He has taught on 4 continents and in over 30 countries. He has been on the teaching staff at many international dance camps and has judged at numerous Lindy Hop Championships.

Known as the teacher's teacher, many of his former students have gone on to international acclaim (Skye, Ramona, JoJo Jackson, Andy Reid, Sarah Spence, Caitlin George, to name a few recent ones...).

What makes Bill's instruction unique?
Bill believes that to become a great Lindy Hopper it is first important to thoroughly master the fundamentals. His workshops help all levels of dancers become more aware of how their body works, how to use it to communicate and more fully express music and connect to another person. You will not just learn "the rules", but you will understand how technique really applies to your dancing. And how to differentiate between "styling" and "technique". Bill's unique approach to teaching will not only make you a better social Lindy Hopper, but you will learn techniques that will apply to everything, including Blues & Balboa. No matter what your level, Bill's classes will give you an abundance of information to move your dancing up a few notches!

Instructor Bio

Laura learned her dancing basics from a group of Lindy enthusiasts while at Trinity University in San Antonio. Since then she has been heavily involved in efforts to promote this style of dance to the community. For the past three years she has been teaching Lindy dance lessons. "The most important aspect of dancing to me," Laura says "is the ability to reach out for your partner and let them know everything that is going on inside of you and making sure that you pick up on everything that is going on inside of him. It's like the best conversation you've ever had."
