VICE PRESIDENT | KRIS GARRETT
TREASURER | NESTOR TORRES
Nestor has been a regular here and quite possibly at every other swing dancing location in the DFW area. New to the board this year, Nestor can be found regularly teaching, practicing, and wandering around behind the scenes. He started his swing dancing journey nearby at Southside Preservation Hall, which continues to hold dance events to this day.
"Do I really have to give a quote?"
MEMBER-AT-LARGE | LAUREN ANDREWS
Lauren grew up with the jitterbug and love for the 1940s from her grandparents. She officially started learning swing dancing with FWSDS in early 2019. Her main love is Lindy Hop, though she is getting into Shag! As member-at-large, Lauren is in charge of facilitating communication between the board and the dancers, and in charge of FWSDS's social media.
"We should all do more things that make us lose track of time - that's what Swing Dancing is for me!"
