Lori has taught swing dancers of the San Francisco Bay Area since 2013. In addition to over a decade of experience in the community, there is nothing she enjoys more than using her unique, infectious enthusiasm to inspire students. If you are planning a class, an event, or just want personal instruction, no partner is necessary! She can get anyone up and moving to the music in no time.

why swing dance?

To make new friends! To be part of a community. To be active; to move your body and tighten your reflexes. To challenge yourself with something new. To have fun! To learn about American music, culture, history, and dance. To practice social skills in a friendly environment. To experience sincerity and accomplishment. To be silly and joyful and excited for each new dance.
