Mimi Liu-Leyco

Mimi LiuMimi Liu-Leyco is ecstatic to share the spirit of the Jazz Age in her dancing and teaching. A lifelong dancer, she started swing dancing on a whim in 2005 as a summer hobby in Pasadena, California. Later that year, she moved to New York City, where her love for jazz music and its related dances blossomed exponentially. Today, she is recognized as an up-and-coming force in the Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Authentic Jazz worlds, winning numerous dance awards locally and nationally. She is especially remembered for her sassy and graceful stylings on the floor. In her hometown of NYC, Mimi is known as an established teacher, performer, and choreographer of swing dance. Her advice to all swing lovers is to embrace the flow of the music, which is how she continually finds joy in swing.
