“Put the music inside you and see what wants to happen.”
Doug grew up listening to his father play ragtime piano but only started dancing in his 40’s when he took his first Lindy hop class with Eric Shaw. Since then he’s become an avid social dancer who’s as interested in Solo Jazz improvising as he is in partner dancing.
He also likes the heightened experience that competition brings and has made the finals in several local and regional events. One of his highlights was being a member of the winning performance team at Lindy Bout X — an event where he was also voted by his peers to win the spirit award.
Doug continues to practice his basics while exploring more creative frontiers but still hasn’t learned not to watch inspiring dance videos right before bed.
