Peter Flahiff is a swing and tap dancer. He performs, instructs, DJs and speaks as a jazz music and dance historian. Peter began swing dancing in 1993 and teaching just one year later.

He’s studied with many of the past masters of these dances. Today, Peter counts some of the world’s top dancers and instructors as his own former students. Not a competitor himself, Peter’s worldwide reputation is as a highly sought-after social dancer and instructor. He helped create several thriving venues over the years (Rusty’s Rhythm Club in LA, ATOMIC Ballroom in Orange County, and Eastside Stomp in Seattle.) Peter’s classes are legendary for their clarity, humor and high spirits. He always continues to further his own education, taking instruction from some of the greatest dancers in the world. Yes, he’s pretty much always in a suit.
Lauren Smith has been dancing throughout her life, and started swing dancing in 2007, when a friend brought her to LA’s Lindy Groove. After that, she could be found dancing almost every night of the week, competing regularly, and teaching throughout the LA area.
Lauren has taught at Balboa on the River (Australia,) Minor Swing (Sweden,) Big Sky Weekend (USA,) and has headlined events across Europe, Australia, and the United States. She specializes in jazz era dances, including Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston, Collegiate Shag, and Slow Drag. She has won and placed in a number of national dance competitions, including Camp Hollywood, the Lone Star Championships, Inspiration Weekend, Le Hot Sauce, and many others. She is also a sought after competition judge.
Lauren has been a DJ at several notable events, including The Snowball, Bal-Ast Off!, The Balboa Experiment, Balboa on the River, and Big Sky Sky Weekend, to name a few. Her degree in vocal music education allows her to bring a unique approach to classes, incorporating Alexander techniques, natural musicality, body efficiency, and other dance skills.
