Mike & Frankie

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.

January 04th, 2015 | Category: board_members,Staff

Natalie has always been drawn to arts, music and movement. She dabbled in folk, contra, ballet and ballroom dance, before discovering the Lindy Hop in 2009. This revelation has blossomed into a full-on dance addiction.

Natalie enjoys performing, competing and traveling to events all over the world. She holds several titles.  But her proudest achievements are being a big part of Boston Swing Central, organizing dance events, teaching, inspiring and supporting a wonderful family of dancers.  She is known for her energy, playfulness and joyful expression. Natalie believes in making every dance unique to each partner and music, and in creating an authentic dance conversation full of fun and happiness.

Wayne Miller – Volunteer Coordinator

January 02nd, 2015 | Category: board_members,Staff

5646Wayne 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.

Katie Piselli – Marketing Manager

January 01st, 2015 | Category: Staff

Katie-PiselliKatie was truly inspired by joyful, high energy dancing back in middle school when she performed with the New Hampshire Dance Institute (NHDI), described as “somewhere between Broadway and the playground.” She truly missed it and just when she never thought she could find the “adult” version, she discovered Lindy Hop in 2009 and it was magic all over again! She fell deeply in love with social dance and couldn’t be happier. Lindy Hop, Balboa, West Coast Swing, you name it! Katie is a regular in the lively Boston scene, frequenting the weekly social dances, teaching, and competing. She really enjoys live music, the Tranky Doo, teaching beginners, and dancing like she means it! In addition to dancing, Katie adores her husband (who taught her the art of social dance), her rascal of a cat, Boo Boo, and digital scrap-booking.
