step 3: meet the team
Lindsey started dancing at age three in Texas, where she was born and raised. As a child she trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern and lyrical dance, and as a teen, her dance focused on ballet, jazz, pom, and high-kick. She won several 1st place titles at both regional and national competitions with her dance team. During this time, she also performed at several high profile events, including half-time shows for the Houston Rockets and at Disney World in Orlando.
Lindsey was first introduced to partner dancing during her time in San Diego where she learned Samba and Cha-Cha-Cha at Mary Murphy’s Champion Ballroom Academy. In 2012, she moved to New Orleans and began dancing Argentine Tango. Since that time, she has intensively trained in Tango, and she has traveled the world to take lessons from master teachers. At the beginning of 2016, she co-founded Milonga Osada, an organization that hosts social events and visiting instructors, in order to support and continue the growth of the New Orleans Tango community.
Over the last 5 years, Lindsey has expanded her partner dancing training to include West coast swing, salsa, rumba, east coast swing, lindy hop, blues, foxtrot, and waltz. As a teacher, Lindsey has spent a decade choreographing and teaching how dance routines, facilitating workshops on interpersonal skills, leadership coaching, communication, giving feedback, and relationship management skills (Lindsey also studied psychology or 8 years, which has helped her understand the ways people learn, what motivates them, and how people communicate). Since 2016, she has been drawing on those experiences in teaching Argentine tango ballroom classes, as well as 1st dance lessons for wedding couples.
Alex’s first time moving to music was in the family room of the house he grew up in on the outskirts of Chicago. He couldn’t help marching to the tunes of his father and brother as they played on their trumpets together. His first foray into partner dance was around age 11 when he a danced a polka with his mother at a wedding, but he wouldn’t get back into it until the late 90s.
Everything changed after he watched the notorious Gap commercial featuring Lindy dancers flying and doing energetic tricks. It was the spark that led him to sign up for his first swing class in 1999. After that, Alex refocused his social dance skills in Lindy learning from Nicolle Wood of Swing City Chicago. His progress in Country dancing happened on the dance floor at a bar. By 2000, Alex was extensively training in West Coast Swing, Lindy, and Country. He also began training with Matt and Ula Rivers in International Latin and participated in multiple latin dance troops in Chicago. During this time, he was also invited to participate in the Big City Swing Lindy dance troupe.
In addition to his expansive body of knowledge in dance, he also has a deep understanding of movement from other parts of his life. Alex has been an avid sports player throughout his life and currently plays on sand volleyball teams. He has also been a licensed massage therapist since 2002. His unique background has provided him with a level of understanding of body mechanics and body movement that enables him to not only provide very specific feedback to his students to improve their technique, but also easily relay information to his students by connecting the dance they are learning to their own hobbies.
