Laura KeatLaura Keat has had the honor to travel the globe teaching and performing three of the original swing dance styles: Lindy Hop, Balboa and Collegiate Shag. Laura loves that each dance style enables her to respond differently to the diversity of swing and jazz music.
Even though she has accumulated Championship titles in all three styles at many of the most prestigious and respected Swing Dance Competitions in the world, her personal strength is showcased on the social dance floor. While social dancing, Laura has a unique ability to follow a variety of leads while exhibiting grace, elegance, musicality and finding a way to add her own voice into every dance.
Her classes are designed to inspire each dancer to find their own personal style and voice while enhancing their partnering skills through the use of good body mechanics, connection and rhythm. Laura's passion for teaching compliments her passion for swing dancing itself, bringing a fresh perspective to her classes and an inspiring experience for students of all levels.
Laura, and partner Nick Williams, will join us once again in September 2012 offering an exciting weekend of Balboa and Lindy Hop workshops!
