Mike has been dancing in Boston since forever. He is responsible for the sound and books all the bands and DJs for Boston Swing Central’s awesome Friday night dances. Over the years, he has also coordinated Swingin’ on the Charles and Roaring Twenties Lawn Party. He has also DJed at many exchanges and camps outside of Boston, including Connecticut, New York and Montreal. Mike 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.

Wayne started swing dancing in the 90’s after watching an old VHS cassette of Swingers one too many times. After spending a number of years dabbling in dance, he found himself sucked in to Boston Swing Central by the extra-friendly people and pure fun. Wayne’s philosophy of dance is that dancing is the most natural expression of joy, and as long as you and your partner are happy, you’re doing it right.
In addition to dancing, Wayne has a deep love of origami and jazz music. If you see him at a dance, ask him to make you a crane, or ask him the difference between sweet, hot, and jump music. You will make his day.
