JUMP JOINT SWING REVIEW FEB 2019
Marie’s  Lindy Hop dances & lessons are in the “BEST” category.  She is amazing. You will learn the basic 8 count swing-out  (Real Lindy) in short order at the first event you attend & that is a rare find in this city.  Marie is very friendly, competent and experienced.  Her dedication to her students is extraordinary.  Great place to learn & practice Lindy swing. FROM: Byron Starr, accomplished Fusion Dancer, Founder/Operator of the Sea To Sky Swing Dance Conventions + the Dance For Fun Club
