Dancing - Lindy Hop - Blues - Dance Teacher

David Ljung Madison

Dave started dancing in 1996 after seeing the seminal and cheesy film Swing Kids.

He has been dancing obsessively since then, and started teaching in 1998.

At the Sunday Late Night of the 2001 Austin Lindy Exchange, Dave discovered Blues dancing and his life took a turn.

Since then he's been dancing and teaching Lindy Hop and Blues across the country, and now teaching across the globe with Ursula Ledergerber.

He is also widely unknown as the originator of the House Party Blues Crepe, and is still waiting to receive the appropriate props for this, a parade might be nice.

His love for dancing comes out of the connection and improvisation found in non-formal, non-choreographed partnered dancing.

His love for teaching comes from a desire to break down and analyze the components of a dance, and transfer those universal principles to his students.

Because of this, his classes are heavily rooted in connection and foundations.
