We're happy to introduce our 2017 artists

Committed presence in the classroom

We want people who are as invested in the progress of the students as the students themselves are.

Builders of community

We acknowledge that dance instructors are often role models, so we take seriously the search for those who value inclusivity, humbleness, approachability, and the desire to foster positive change within the swing dance world.

Artistic originality

Finally, we look for people who don't just reinforce contemporary trends, but instead forge their own path to expressing the music, which may be trendsetting in and of itself, or may not be! The important thing is a love for authentic creation.
