Dawn Hampton, she is truly the spirit of the dance.

Why do you love swing dancing so much?:

I love swing dancing because it embodies happiness and is very social. You can go anywhere in the world where there is Lindy Hop and everyone understands how to ask each other to dance. You can have a full conversation with someone that doesn’t even speak your language because of swing dancing and that is just the coolest thing ever.
