Ben Luhrman started swing dancing in 2006 when one of his friends invited him to Sam’s Burger Joint in San Antonio, TX. Since then he has come to love Swing Dance, Jazz Age music, and history. *Dance Styles Taught: Heel Shag, Collegiate Shag , Charleston, Lindy Hop, Balboa, Vernacular Jazz, & Tap.
Now Ben travels all over dancing, instructing, competing, performing, and learning. He strives for authenticity in his own dance and encourages others to find their own voice. He is intrigued by the originality, rhythm, and fun swing dance exudes. He is also convinced that leading and following are both equally important tasks. Ben takes pride in his local community of San Antonio, working with the San Antonio Swing Dance Society (non-profit), KRTU Jazz 91.7 (non-profit), local musicians (like the Jim Cullum Jazz Band) , organizing events, preserving, and celebrating the joy of swing dance one step at a time. – CLICK HERE FOR VIDEOS
