Meet your Instructors!
Andria and Sean both started training in classical dance, theater, and music at a young age. Sean discovered Lindy Hop in 2008, and Andria later in 2011. They have been seen social dancing and teaching around the Phoenix Valley for over a decade. Their biggest love is Lindy Hop – but they also specialize in other vernacular jazz dance styles, such as Charleston and Balboa. They have dedicated themselves to studying jazz dance history spanning from the 1920s-1950s.
In 2018, Andria won The Northwest Lindy Hop Championships amateur social dance competition. Sean has competed at the Advanced and All Stars Levels. His competition wins include the International Lindy Hop Championship social finals, 2nd place at The Northwest Lindy Hop Championships in 2017 & 2018, and 3rd place at Inspiration Weekend in 2016.
Andria and Seans’ primary goal is to spread the love and joy of swing dancing, jazz history, and culture. Nothing brings them greater happiness than to connect with friends and newcomers alike on the social floor, so please ask them to dance!
