Groove Juice Swing: Swing Dancing in Rochester, NY

Beth Midavaine

Beth Midavaine

Beth's introduction to jazz and swing dancing came from the movie "Swing Kids," and it was love at first sight!  It sent her on a hunt that lasted for five years until she found a local teaching group focused solely on swing and lindy hop.

Since August of 1998 she has attended dance events all over the country including Canada and the UK. These travels have allowed her to dance and associate with legendary dancers and musicians. She has added to her dance repertoire by developing a unique philosophy and style of Blues, as well as learning other forms of dance such as Salsa and West Coast Swing.

Beth loves to teach and pass on her passion for Lindy Hop to others. She started teaching in 2000 (RIT Swing Club), and then stepped down in August of 2004 to help found Groove Juice Swing and has been an active member of the group ever since. She's thrilled to be associated with these friends who are inspiring dancers and teachers!

"Jazz is dance music…and if you can't dance to it, then it's not jazz." - Wynton Marsalis
