Andrew has taught and performed in venues throughout the U.S. and Europe. Competition highlights include: 2001 ALHC 1st place Cabaret Champion, 2002 2nd place World Lindy Hop Champion and 2003 ALHC 1st place Jill & Jack Champion. For several years, Andrew danced with the Flyin' Lindy Hoppers Dance Team. He brings a fresh approach to creative social dance.
On a more personal note, I first remember Andrew dancing two years ago at the Harlem Jazz Dance festival. He was doing these out-of-this-world crazy moves with this guy from France -- it was beautiful but slightly scary. They competed -- the only Jack-and-Jack couple in the Hells-a-popping contest -- and everyone was saying that they should have gotten into the finals.
Then I saw him social dancing at LindyGra last year. He was the guy with the beads in his hair who all my friend-girls were gushing about. After watching him dance, I could see that he was one of those rare dancers who cares just as much about social dancing as he does about competing. He is really excited about dancing and teaching in Austin.
