Chiara Coombs started her swing dance journey while living abroad in Seoul, Korea. Having studied classical harp since age seven, she instantly fell in love with Lindy Hop as a new way to express herself. She currently performs around the Bay Area as a member of the chorus girl troupe, Someday Sweethearts, and San Francisco-based group Swing or Nothing. She spends her time practicing, performing, and working part-time as an ESL instructor (while attending graduate school).
Chiara wants her students to learn to express themselves musically through the dance along with giving them a solid technical foundation. Chiara invites her students to enjoy the learning process through hard work and lots of fun!
