Victoria’s dance shenanigans began at age 4. Her passion and ability for solo dancing and WCS was cultivated at the studio through the juniors jazz & WCS teams. Her quick success in WCS competitions culminated in her winning the 2014 NASDE All Star Tour. Immediately afterwards, she began to place and final in Champions divisions. She now teaches hip hop at Buddy Schwimmer’s Dance Center, continues to train at the Edge Performing Arts Center in LA with the top choreographers in the world, travels around the globe to teach WCS with her partner Ben Morris, and is a full time student at University.

Ben began swing dancing, both Lindy and WCS, at the age of 12 and is now a celebrated Champion dancer several times over, Spirit of Lindy Hop award winner, a CA Swing Dance Hall of Fame award winner, and a featured dancer in the movie Love N’ Dancing and the Leann Rimes Music Video “Swingin.” A graduate of UCLA, he runs his weekly dance, Swingin the Blues, and regularly guest teaches at several local colleges during the week. On the weekends, Ben travels all over the world to teach, compete, MC, judge, perform, and is known for his fun dance style, infectious personality, and enjoyable workshops.
