Laura Keat immediately developed a passion for the art of swing dancing when she started dancing in 2001. Soon after falling in love with swing dancing, Laura began winning national Swing dance titles and gaining recognition as a championship Lindy Hop follow with an independent style and point of view.
She loves dancing with a wide variety of leads with diverse styles and ideas to challenge and broaden her own abilities as a follow. She began dancing Balboa and Collegiate Shag as her love for swing dancing broadened to other dances of the Big Band era and is currently one of few dancers who excels at all three dances.
As an instructor, she brings a fresh perspective towards developing each student’s technical foundation and individual style. For Laura, every class is a chance to put smiles on peoples’ faces and to encourage creativity, musicality and growth to further enjoy social dancing.
