Veronica Ramirez is a San Francisco-based Lindy Hop dancer. They started swing dancing as a sophomore at UC Berkeley in 2012, fell in love immediately, and for better or worse, started teaching their peers in 2013. Since graduating in 2015, they've performed in teams across California with UC Berkeley students and across the country with Shimmytown, as well as taught monthly series and special workshops at local venues across the Bay Area. They love making dances feel like magic, empowering everyone to bring their whole selves to every dance, and reading everything about jazz that they can get their hands on.
