In 2007, a friend sent her a video of the 2006 ULHS solo Charleston competition, and she was entranced. It took a few years, but in 2011, after Googling "swing dance DC," she ended up at the Josephine Butler Parks Center and took her first basics class as a follower. About a year later, she decided she wanted to lead as well as follow, and an ambidancing dragon was born. Although she now has a boring job, she was once a Ghost Tour Guide in Lafayette Square in a whole get up and everything.
In addition to teaching, Lexie serves as New Columbia Swing's Director of Community Partnerships. She's so glad you're here!
