Bio (a.k.a why Vicky is Awesome)

Hailing originally from Winnipeg, Vicky was a founding member of the University of Manitoba Swing Dance Club (UMSwing), former Club president (for many great years!) and dance instructor from 2001 to 2012. Outside of UMswing, she was not only an avid participant and event organizer in the Lindy scene but also dances West-Coast Swing, Salsa and Country.

Following her move to Québec City in the summer of 2012, Vicky quickly became a regular at École de Danse Port-O-Swing and was chosen for their advance Lindy toupe (The Destroyers) in 2012-2013, which took 2nd place at the Canadian Swing Championships (Professional Division). Last year, Vicky found the world or Rockabilly Jive and placed 1st in 3 competitions plus became part of the Jive troupe, Mercenaires, which placed first at Jive Fest in Montreal. She also began teaching workshops and classes at Port-O-Swing (in French!)
This year Vicky will be taking on many roles: dance teacher, choreographer, coach, dancer, and competitor all in the name of Swing!

Specializing in Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston & Solo Jazz, Vicky also loves to teach workshops in Collegiate Shag, The Big Apple & other Jazz choreography, Slips & Slides, Technique & Body Movement, and Musicality!
