ABOUT Michael (Login to Contact Michael )

I'm a Hokie and I love people.


I started swing dancing on 9/5/14 by chance and haven't looked back. I have danced every week since. I took a 5-week east coast swing class, a 5-week lindy hop class, and a lindy hop workshop taught by Michael Gamble and Jaya Dorf. I recently attended my first exchange: PittStop Lindy Hop. It's been encouraging to be told that I'm the "fastest improved" dancer in my dance scene. I also really like blues dancing, but I still would consider myself a beginner at it.


I play the drums.
