Having taught dance for more than ten years, Ben draws inspiration from a love of all music and an unstoppable urge to move any time he hears a swung beat. Ben has been teaching in Birmingham for eight years, and before that spent twelve years learning and teaching in Auburn and throughout the southeast. Ben's energetic dance style, passion for the fundamental art of the dance, and engaging teaching methods make his lessons a memorable and informative experience for dancers of any skill level.
Katie's love of Lindy Hop has had her dancing and traveling since 2011. Her passion for the art makes her a creative and inspiring force, and she enjoys working with students who share that same passion. Katie's creative style is based on a firm foundation of the Lindy Hop essential movements, which she desires for all of her students to master, giving them a solid vocabulary to improvise with and expound upon with their own creative ideas.
Stephanie first got into swing dance during the fall of 2014, when she let some friends convince her to join them for a night of dancing in the Auburn University Student Center. Since then, she has learned how to dance Lindy Hop, Charleston and Balboa and has had the joy of DJing events, both locally and regionally. The music is what really caught her attention originally - "there's just something magical about that swing beat that makes you want to dance." Stephanie's favorite thing right now is watching our students feel that same magic for the first time, especially if it's to a song that she's DJing.
