Ruby first discovered swing dancing in 2013 and has since been competing, performing, and studying the dance with great joy. Originally from Australia, she has performed in professional dance troupes in both Sydney and London, and has travelled internationally to take classes and learn from her idols.
Passionate about music across the decades, she loves swing era music and hot jazz – and can’t deny her soft spot for rock and roll and rhythm and blues either. Find her on the dance floor swinging out or jamming some solo jazz steps. Ruby teaches at Old Street with Nancy Hitzig and Pablo Schrödinger.
