About the Teachers
Samantha Nguyen & Calvin Lu
Sam and Calvin fell in love with swing dancing at UC Berkeley’s Lindy on Sproul and SwingCal, both becoming active members of the swing community by teaching, mentoring, and DJing. Raised in Cal’s ambidancetrous community, you’ll often find them both leading and following on the social dance floor. Their dancing focuses on playful partnership and lighthearted silliness. Coming from performances with the Sproul Stompers and recent competition experience, Sam and Calvin are excited to share their enthusiasm at Cat’s Corner!
Check out their moves in the 2016 Swingin’ at the Savoy History of Lindy Hop Strictly Competition.
