ABOUT US:
Hello and welcome! Find out all about us and our dancing and even more! See if you can find out about Ben's tooth
W Ben and SHeri Swing Dancing elcome to the home of Ben and Sheri Yau. We are swing dance teachers based in Pasadena, California (Los Angeles County).

Since meeting in 1999, Ben and Sheri have instructed, judged, competed, and danced around the world. Ben and Sheri are especially known for their innovative and musical dancing and choreography. Though Ben and Sheri have won numerous competition awards, they are most proud of their 2005 National Jitterbug Championship "Golden Budgie" Award, given out annually to the person or people best exhibiting the true spirit of Jitterbug.

It is with this spirit Ben and Sheri joyfully bring their brand of energy and positive attitude to the entire swing dance community including their
weekly classes and workshops, their monthly swing dance Third Saturday Swing, and their dance team The One2Swing Jitterbugs.

Ben and Sheri look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!
