Emily Schuhmann & Collyn Justus

Collyn & Emily are a dynamic Balboa duo hailing from Louisville, Kentucky with competition wins between the two of them including 1st Mix&Match at All Balboa weekend in 2015 and many, many, many 1, 2, & 3rd place finishes in competitions from Great Lakes Balboa Escape, Music City Shuffle, Sparx and more. Recently they've brought their years of dance and teaching experience together in partnership where they strive to show how both lead and voices can be explored and empowered in each dance. Their many years working on Balboa and body mechanics give their teaching an informed, detailed and playful twist. When they aren't twisting, swiveling or shuffling around the floor, both teachers, artists, writers and creative thinkers and would love to have a laugh with you in the class room and out on the floor.

Ryan & Kayla Quatman

Where to begin on their journey? Well Ryan has been around the swing scene for 12 years now making friends, learning different styles of dances, teaching and DJing for 10 years and working his butt off to continue to bring exciting events and bands to the region for everyone to enjoy. He has been operating and leading the Cincinnati Lindy Society (formerly Cincinnati Lindy Exchange) for 10 years now with 7 years of Smorgarbord of Swing now under his belt. He loves to be a goofball while teaching class and always loves to bring new moves / ideas to his students.

Kayla literally fell in love the minute she stepped on the dance floor at her first attended monthly dance in 2015 and hasn't stopped since. Always a lover of swing music and when she found out people still swing dance, you couldn't stop her from coming out. In the 4 years since she started, she has worked on her craft, began teaching, DJing and becoming an important part of the Lindy Society.
