Hello, thank you for visiting my website.

I am a fellow LIndy Hopper, and this is my first WEBSITE.  I created it to share the Los Angeles Swing dancing experience with local dancers and with other dancers around the world.   I've built this site by myself  and it's a labor of love, especially since I'm not a computer expert and don't even know html.  I usually work on it after hours following my hectic days at the office.   So please be patient, if you don't see updates happening daily.

I hope that you will find value and entertainment here, and that you will enjoy seeing yourselves and friends on the pages.

At this site, you are the stars. We are privileged to live in the "swing capital of the world" where we can find places to dance every night of the week. So I hope our fellow swing dancers all around the country and the world will get to know us.

I also welcome your contribution so that the articles and opinions will reflect varied views.

After 8 years as Producer of a weekly TV show on KTLA channel 5, called "MAKING IT," I've left to start my own company "ACES TV." It's a very busy time for me, much more than a full time job.

My favorite stress-releaver is swing dancing! Somehow I make time for it every week.

I took my first East Coast Swing class at THE STUDIO OF THE PERFORMING ARTS (now THIRD STREET DANCE) 12 years ago, and I was hooked.

I went on to take Lindy Hop (Savoy and Hollywood Style), West Coast Swing, Salsa, Merengue, Cha Cha, and even some private Argentine Tango lessons (in Argentina!).

Again, thanks for taking the time to visit, and hope you'll come back.

Tell your friends to check it out!!

See you on the dance floor!

Sonia A.
