Hi, I’m YVONNE
I am proud to be a part of the USOJT program. It also gives me the opportunity to give back to the dance community. It is my belief that every judge should continue their judging education because dance continues to evolve and judges need to continue to learn!
I am the primary training Director of the US Open Certified Judges Program, Chief Judge of US OPEN SWING DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS, INC, served as a Judge at many events on the NASDE circuit and a Board member of the World Swing Dance Council.
US OPEN SWING DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS, INC President, Event Director & USOCJ COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN
US OPEN SWING DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS, INC Secretary, Assistant Event Director, USOCJ Assistant Director and Online Classroom architect.
Our Host started his dance career learning to break dance and was soon teaching it at local dance studios. He started on the road to partnership dancing after taking a training course with Fred Astaire dance studio in 1985. Quickly becoming the dance director, he went on to competing and coaching ballroom and Latin dances for over 30 years. Always on a quest for growth, Stew focused his attention on learning “Real” west coast swing after retiring for the ballroom world. Stew is and actor and comedian living in Los Angeles Ca.
Thank You Stew
