Lynda took her first structured dance steps in 1997.  She enjoys all styles of dance, including Rock n Roll, Ceroc, Ballroom and Hip hop …….the list goes on.  Her biggest passion by far is Swing Dancing which she discovered in 1998.  The music, the dancing, the fashion, the glamour, and worth another mention, the dancing, are all facets of Swing that Lynda can’t get enough of.  Her first Lindy Hop lesson started with The Jitterbug Stroll warm-up, quite a tricky piece for a novice.  Undeterred she continued with weekly lessons.  Wanting to be on the dance floor more often, Lynda began leading.  Having the ability to lead and follow brought about great insight, resulting in a teaching role in 2000 with Jitterbugs.  Since then she hasn’t looked back.  Teaching Swing on the North-shore, Auckland Uni Rec Centre, Ceroc studio, Papakura, and now in Whangarei.  Bitten by the Swing bug left Lynda with a thirst for more.  Only quenched briefly with many trips abroad to Swing Dance workshops.  These featured inspirational international teachers.  Herräng Dance Camp in Sweden was and still is a dance career highlight.  Dancing in beautiful historical St Petersberg, Russia came a close second.  Her idols, Rob and Diane Van Haaren’s Indian Summer Swing Camp in California was an experience never to be forgotten.  And most recently, “Balboa on the River” in Brisbane, Australia.  Lynda enjoys sharing her knowledge of Swing, believing that everyone benefits from having a little bit of Swing in their lives.  Come and share the joy.
