Meet Your Instructor
Buddy Schwimmer, also known as the “King of Swing” and “The Man with a Thousand Moves,” was one of the top award-winning dancers in the business for decades. Not only was he a performer on the 1977 television variety show Dance Fever with Lynn Vogen, as well as the 1992 show Big Band Ballroom Bash, he is also credited with inventing the nightclub two-step in the 1960’s.
Over the years, Buddy has trained dancers to become star-quality performers and choreographers for movies, music videos and tv shows including, So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars, Your Chance to Dance, American Graffiti, Christina Aguilera’s Candy Man, American Idol, High School Musical, Strictly Come Dancing and more!
Elegant Occasions is honored to host Buddy for this Syncopations Workshop and thrilled to bring his knowledge, skill and good humor to the local West Coast Swing community.
