About Us

Aaron

Iron City Swing member Aaron.

  

Aaron Jones began competing in online hip-hop competitions in 2007. This led to a desire to dabble in many new dances for years to follow including Capoeira, Breakdance, and Ballroom. In 2009, he began his journey with Lindy Hop after joining his university’s swing club. Now Aaron travels to events throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to learn and compete in this style, as well as in Blues dancing and West Coast Swing. He also teaches with Gas House Swing in Allentown, PA. Aaron loves encouraging his students to listen to the music, their partner, and their own bodies to make every dance special.

Jaymee began her swing dance journey with Penn State University’s Swing Dance Club in 2001. Eighteen years later, she’s still in love! She dances many swing styles, including Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, Charleston, Balboa, Blues, and West Coast Swing. While swing is her main squeeze, she’s also dabbled in other dances throughout the years including a variety of Ballroom and Latin styles. You’ll catch her wigglin’ her booty to nearly every kind of music! Jaymee loves teaching Lindy Hop and other swing styles at the Gas House Dance Hall in Catasauqua, PA and around northeastern Pennsylvania. She’s also enjoyed advising and teaching at multiple college swing dance clubs, including Ohio State, Princeton, and Lehigh University.
