Brian Zimmer is passionate about making his dancing better, along with the dancing of the people in his scene. He has helped organize and teach at Wednesday Night Hop in Silicon Valley for a while, and is now stepping out into taking on more challenges and responsibilities. Part of the process of organizing Epic Swing is a selfish endeavor - he wants to bring the best teachers and dancers out so that he can learn from and dance with them himself! He's come a good way from when he started, but he's got a lot to learn! However, he also really wants his students to experience all the awesome things that these people have to offer as well.
Audrey C. Kanemoto
Audrey is addicted to making a great vision into reality. Sometimes it is her own vision, but often times the best projects have come from serious teamwork. Audrey and two friends orchestrated a Senior Banquet for their graduating architecture class of roughly 100 attendees complete with dinner, slide show, dancing, commemorative etched champagne glass, and contact book. It was so much under budget that they ended up giving $5 back per person the night of the banquet. Since then, there have been countless projects including a music video, movies, dance venue parties and band nights, dance workshops, and, for her job, additions, remodels and new home design, where she makes a great leader and a follower, sliding in and out of each role seamlessly and appropriately. There is nothing in the world to her like making amazing things happen together with some phenomenal people.
