The science is in! In this episode, we chat with Steve and Chanzie about the joy that dancing has brought to their lives, and it can do the same for you! But we now know that not only can dancing provide you physical health benefits, but according to the New England Journal of Medicine's report, dancing can actually make you smarter and help you live a longer, more fulfilling life! Plus, it's a blast! Stephen Sayer and Chandrae Roettig Gomez, also known as Chanzie, are dancers/instructors who specialize in LA/smooth style lindy and collegiate shag. While they have a love for all things that swing, their primary influences and inspirations come from the Los Angeles Jitterbugs of the 1940’s and 1950’s. Their partnership began in late 2010 and together Steve and Chanzie have taken First Place titles in several national swing competitions. You can find them teaching and performing all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. They are committed to improving and pushing the limits of their own dancing as well as those who take their classes, while keeping their regional style of swing alive.
