about me

About Laura:
Laura Keat began her swing dance lifestyle in 2002 when her brother, after seeing Swing Kids for the first time, convinced Laura to take him swing dancing.  After a day of Lindy Hop, she was hooked for life. Ever the disciplined student and skilled competitor, Laura began winning national contests and gaining recognition as a Lindy Hop follow with an independent style and point of view.  Laura’s love for swing & jazz music pushed her to expand her dancing into Balboa, Collegiate Shag, Solo Jazz, Charleston and dancing in her non-primary role as a lead in Lindy and Bal.
To this day, Laura loves dancing with a wide variety of partners with diverse styles and ideas to challenge and broaden her own ideas and abilities.  As an instructor, she brings a fresh perspective to her classes, working to develop a technical foundation for the purpose of creating opportunity for individual expression and voice in response to the music.
When Laura isn't on the dance floor she can be found with her dog hiking and camping in the Rocky Mountains, enjoying the beautiful Colorado sunshine or a good book in a great coffee shop.
