The 2015 Swing Patrol Legend of the Year, Michaela is loved and admired throughout the swing dance scene for her great teaching, brilliant dancing and calm and nurturing spirit. Michaela has been a member of four performance troupes in her time – the Rhythm Rascals, the Skyliners, the Dinahs and the Hotfoot Strutters. She now works alongside Susie Pembroke-Wilson and Nick Grant teaching the Skyliners, as well as with Jeff Tong coaching Club Stomp. Michaela also teaches at Swing Patrol Solo – Angel alongside Susie, working on Authentic Solo Jazz and Charleston and sharing dance steps and history along the way. She initially started teaching at Brixton in 2013, and she is proud to say that many of her students have gone on to become fantastic swing dancers, teachers and great community builders. You’ll also find Michaela at Brixton Bounce once a month – it’s the perfect place for new folks and a fantastic environment for South London dancers to come together, practice and ask questions.
