Watch Alison in action:
Alison can hardly believe it’s been almost 9 years since she started swing dancing in Seattle, WA. Since then, dancing has taken her to Herräng, Sweden where she trained with world-renowned Lindy Hop instructors. She currently performs with the Someday Sweethearts, a vintage chorus girl troupe, throughout the Bay Area, and teaches weekly classes with Nathan at Mission Mondays. She is thrilled to be teaching in San Francisco and promises to bring insight and enthusiasm to every class!
Intermediate/Advanced Level (6+ months of Intermediate Lindy classes recommended).
Partner highly recommended, but come to class and we’ll match you up if you need a partner.
Watch Justin & Olivia in action:
Justin is a native of Seattle, WA, where he learned to dance and acquired a taste for fast music and strong coffee. He first learned to dance at the age of 15. After a short time as a pastry chef, he traded early mornings and pastry bags for late nights and dance floors and hasn’t looked back. Justin is always looking to spread the love of swing dance and music, whether as a performer, teacher, DJ or organizer.
Hailing from her hometown of Vancouver, WA where she raised a pet cow as a child and went to a school where she got sent to the principal’s office for wearing shorts on the wrong day, Olivia now lives in the big city and lives her dreams. When she was just 17,Olivia was peer pressured into going to Swing Club at her school. Little did she know that it would alter her life forever. In 2008 she moved to Seattle to pursue lindy hop and she has never looked back. She has since performed, competed, choreographed and taught. Olivia now lives in San Francisco and is pumped to keep sharing her lindy hop wisdom.
