Director At Large - Liana Stammers


"there and back again, just like swingouts"

Liana has returned to the island and SDAV after an adventure that took them dancing in the far reaches of London (no, not that one), Ontario. After getting introduced to UVic Swing Dance Club by some friends many moons ago, they've caught the lindy hop bug and never looked back. Lindy hop, balboa, and blues, they'll happily dance it all. You can find them tearing up the dance floor, trying not to fall over laughing from doing "totally on purpose variations", learning some new rhythms, teaching, DJing, being a safer spaces ambassador, nerding out about jazz, or chatting about the culture and history of vernacular jazz dance on dance floors near and far.
