step 3: meet the team

Lindsey Zan & Olandra Lickter - From This Dance Forward

Lindsey Zan

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.
