John Holmstrom is a Lindy Hop instructor from Chicago, IL where he started dancing in 2005. While he dabbled in swing dancing for a few years, it wasn't until one day in 2008 when he was savaged by Peter Strom in a workshop that John truly started doing Lindy Hop. Since then he's immersed himself in Lindy Hop by teaching and performing at Big City Swing in Chicago, competing and choreographing for the CTA Blue Line, a Chicago Lindy Hop team, and founding Traffic Jam Swing.
