Teachers 

Elijah Lee (Sway)

Teaching Contact Improv

Roxanne of Iconic Ballroom

(They/Them)

unnamed.jpg

Pomona grew up dancing Lindy Hop on the west coast of Canada (but sneaking out of her parent's place in high school to go to blues & fusion parties). A jack-of-all-dances, she has won and placed in Lindy, Blues and Fusion competitions worldwide for her leading, following and solo dancing.

She pulls inspiration from a multitude of unexpected places: contact improvisation, clowning, and her experience working in the film industry as a dancer. Her dance is playful, rhythmic and raw, with an emphasis on improvisation, and a deep allegiance to musicality and expression. She has a particular fondness of beginner dancers, and prides herself on her clear, play-focused, and light-hearted teaching style.
