Groove Juice Swing: Swing Dancing in Rochester, NY

Jasmine's first exposure to Lindy Hop was a YouTube video, and from that moment, she was hooked on the energy, heart, and spirit of the dance. She took her first lesson from Groove Juice in Spring 2014, but it wasn't until she moved to Rochester in late 2016 that she started dancing regularly. Since then, she has joined the Groove Juice team to specialize in social media, assist with event organization, and help out behind the scenes in any way she can.

Jasmine has a special place in her heart for solo jazz, and regularly leads Cardio Charleston with other Groove Juice staff. She started travelling for Lindy Hop in 2017, and has had the chance to dance, compete, and perform at events like O-Town Showdown, Swing Riot, CCX, Kind of a Big Deal Weekend, and Stompology. She is honored to have placed at Stompology 2018 (2nd - Solo Jazz Dynamic Duos) and Kind of a Big Deal Weekend 2018 (finals - Lindy Hop Mix and Match).

Jasmine can be found on the dance floor multiple nights a week. She's drawn to the playfulness of Lindy Hop, and loves nothing more than a dance that makes both partners laugh. The athleticism of Lindy Hop is another aspect that keeps her coming back for more. She loves training for harder swing outs, faster Charleston, and bigger aerials!

Jasmine is currently studying accounting at Rochester Institute of Technology. When she's not dancing, she can be found listening to loud music with the car windows rolled down, searching for new active hobbies to try, or on her quest to find the best espresso in Rochester.
