Abby first started swing dancing back when that infamous Gap ad aired in the late 90’s, but only learned Lindy Hop in 2007. Since then she has never looked back and is now trying to learn the whole spectrum of swing dance (particularly lots of vernacular jazz.) But give her a nice clean swing-out and she’s happy as can be. Abby grew up listening to big band jazz and has been playing jazz trombone since she was 10 years old. Nowadays you can find her occasionally sitting in with some of the area’s big bands such as the Compaq Big Band, Tom Nutile Big Band, and the Beantown Swing Orchestra. But even on a gig, Abby’s still got her dancing shoes on.
Julie has been dancing most of her life (including many years of folk dancing), but started dancing Lindy Hop in 2008 as her New Year’s resolution. If only all of her resolutions were so successful! Once she got started, there was no turning back. She is an active member of the Boston Lindy Hop scene, loves to attend events around the US, and teaching and DJing locally. Her forte is managing projects day and night…for the BSC this focus has been getting our new venue, which is her baby…and she hopes you all love it! And now that that’s nearly over, it’s on to putting together our business plan and trying to get us through our non-profit status. She also loves to come up with fun theme ideas, like Paper Moon and our recent watermelon seed spitting contest (BSC female record holder…even if she did have an unfair southern advantage).

DJ RetroMike has been dancing in Boston since 1998. He is responsible for the sound and books all the bands and DJs for Boston Swing Central’s awesome Friday night dances. He is also known as one of the 5 Guys Named Mike, Mike #3 to be exact. Over the years, he has also coordinated the Copley Square Swing Dance. He has also DJed at many exchanges and camps outside of Boston, including Connecticut, New York and Montreal. DJ RetroMike hopes you enjoy dancing to the music he plays and he really loves it when people come up and ask, “what’s that song?” because they have to get the track for themselves….and in case you’re wondering who that is that he’s standing next to in this picture, it’s the late great, wonderful human being and Lindy Hop pioneer, Frankie Manning.
