Cate Rauschenberger started swing dancing as a ballroom dancer at the University of Georgia, but it wasn't until she began attending Hot Jam in Atlanta, GA in 2014 that the music, community, and capacity for expression of lindy hop stole her heart. For the last five years, she's been traveling, learning, and competing around the country, placing at events such as ILHC, Boston Tea Party, Lindyfest, and exchanges throughout the southeast.


As a teacher, she enjoys breaking things down, building them back up, and seeing those joyful, dance "aha!" moments. When not on the road, Cate can be found dancing and teaching in her adopted home-scene of Richmond, VA.
