Mimi and Jeff met in 2006 at the NYU Swing Dance Society, where they both learned their first swing moves! From there, they established a dance (as well as life) partnership, teaching regionally in the tri-state area and gaining recognition at swing events like the International Lindy Hop Championships, All Balboa Weekend, Montreal Swing Riot, Houston LindyFest, and their hometown favorite Frim Fram Jam. In addition, they are established local teachers in the New York City area as resident instructors of You Should Be Dancing and Brooklyn Swings studios, in addition to being featured instructors at New York University, Rutgers University, Columbia University, and Harlem Swing Dance Society. They recently wed in 2016, over 10 years after they met for the first time. Mimi and Jeff describe their own dancing as fun, dynamic, and very connected.
