Join us for our next Club Dance!

Intermediate Instructors for the evening will be

Ben McHenry and Cameo Cross!

Ben and Cameo (BAMEO) have traveled all over the United States, and all over the world including countries such as France, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, England, Ireland, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, with many more on the horizon. Together, they have made 7 US Open Classic Division finals, placed top 3 in multiple NASDE Classic Divisions including 3rd and 4th at US Open Swing Dance Championships, 3rd at Seattle Easter Swing, 1st at Swingtime in the Rockies, and 1st at MADJam just to name a few. Separately, they have consistently placed/won in Jack & Jill and Strictly Swing divisions at competitions all over including Swingdiego, US Open Swing Dance Championships, Capital President’s Day Weekend, Boogie by the Bay, and many others.

Together, they combine knowledge from many components of dancing in general, movement/body mechanics, and WCS specifically. They are known for focusing on many of the most complicated concepts in WCS, and finding ways to simplify them, making them easier to understand and apply. Whether they are teaching, running events, performing, or just social dancing, their goal is to spread their love and passion for WCS to dancers all over the world, and they look forward to many of years of doing just that.
