Danny was born in Wyoming but has since circled the globe pursuing dances of all styles. Starting small while studying Kinesiology at the University of Wyoming, he competed with the Saddle Swingers in the annual Intercollegiate Swing Battle in Denver and became President of the Blues Dancing Club. Following his passion, he has found himself dancing in Salt Lake City, Portland, Dublin, London, Paris, Tokyo, and was even caught on TV dancing in a local festival in Niigata, Japan. While Danny started with the energetic and intense Lindy Hop, he's been grooving with Blues, mixing it up with Fusion, gliding across the floor with smooth dances like Foxtrot and Waltz, struttin' his stuff with Country 2 Step, and heating things up with Latin dances like Cha-Cha and Bachata. Danny loves sharing his passion for dance with others and is always up to take on the dreaded Two Left Feet. He can often be found misquoting Ratatouille by claiming, Anyone can Dance!
Garrett is from a small town in Northern Minnesota. He attended Bemidji State University where he was first exposed to ballroom and swing partner dancing. A decade later, he still loves the art of dance. He has a passion for sharing dance with as many people as possible and making it as easy and understandable as possible. Outside of dance you can catch him playing card games and board games.
Lauren is excited to be able to share her love dance with the Colorado Springs community. Originally from Texas, she's currently a business professor at UCCS and runs a nonprofit supporting women around the globe. She loves to social dance wherever she travels and you can often find her dancing the nights away to Country Swing, Two Step, West Coast Swing, or Salsa. Lauren's goal is to make sure that her students not only know the technical aspects of dance, but are enjoying themselves and having fun! When she's not in the classroom or dancing, she loves adventuring with her 2 kids in the mountains. “To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful… This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking” -Agnes De Mille
