Annie Trudeau
Annie's passion for dance was first well demonstrated when she chose her career as a dance teacher and performer over her engineering physics degree's possibilities. She also trained as a competing artistic gymnast when she was a teenager. She is a co-founder and co-owner of Studio 88-SWING in Montreal (Canada) where she has taught swing since 2001.

As the artistic director, Annie also manages and dances in the Montreal Swinging Air Force dance performance troupe, which has been International Lindy Hop Champions in 2010-11 and 2014 and Canadian Champion 2013-14-15. She is passionate and enthusiastic as a swing dancer, teacher and competitor. Her style joins dynamism and power with a subtleness that is very feminine.

Annie has numerous titles in competition including 6 first place at International Lindy Hop Championships (2008 to 2013 included) in Washington in the Showcase Category and also first place at the European Championships in London in October 2013. She also danced at the Montreal Jazz Fest with the electro-swing band Caravan Palace and was hired as a choreographer for the Cirque du Soleil and lately for the TV Show ''Les Dieux de la Danse''.

Ben White

Ben White has been addicted to all things swing since 2004. He has studied Lindy Hop, Balboa, Tap, and  Solo Jazz dance under masters from the original swing era and worked with world-class contemporary swing dancers.

He has had success both locally and internationally as a competitor and coach, and has has been involved in more than 100 productions as a performer, producer, choreographer, and technician.

Ben is well known for his clear instruction and ability to break down and communicate technique while keeping classes entertaining and engaging.  His instructional resume includes co-founding the venue Eastside Stomp where he works as manager and instructor, teaching at the University of Washington and other schools, and traveling to teach and perform at workshops all over the world.
