“After several years within the swing scene, Rob and Dawn are undoubtedly the reason why it is still alive in this area. They regularly provide solid instruction and sponsor nationally known dancers to do the same in Orlando. They also support live music by occasionally bringing in musicians to play at the regular dances. Rob and Dawn are kind, hospitable, and are the heart to the Orlando swing scene while ensuring their new and existing students' success in learning to swing dance.”
