Bobby White, Author
Bobby is an international swing dance instructor and also has a sordid past in newspaper, magazine, and fiction writing. He has won championships of many different sorts and teaches Balboa, Lindy Hop, and Solo Jazz with his main partner Kate (and a few other partners) across the world. He gives talks on both historical and personal adventures in jitterbug history. If you would like to hire Bobby for his swing dancing services please email him at email@example.com or visit www.bobbykate.com. He is honored to be a part of the Frankie Manning Foundation and the Master of Ceremonies of Lindy Focus.
He coined the word swungover to describe the sensation he, and, he imagined, the entire swing scene, felt the Monday following Frankie Manning’s 95th birthday/memorial weekend in May, 2009.

Chelsea Lee, Editor
Chelsea is a professional editor and swing dance enthusiast living in Washington, DC. With her partner David Lee she travels to dance weekends throughout the U.S. and Canada, teaches dance, and has won several championships in Balboa and Collegiate Shag. When she is not fixing grammar or dancing, Chelsea enjoys cultivating her personal sense of style and making post-it-note vocabulary lists of new words inside of whatever book she is reading. She is proud to be a part of Swungover.
[Author’s Note: If an entry seems free of grammar and spelling mistakes, you can be assured Chelsea Lee has edited it. (And often I go back and add things that are misspelled and punctuated badly. But, despite it all, Chelsea has accepted the job of continually building a castle on the sand. And I’m extremely thankful for it.) Sometimes, however, I go rogue. So if a post is full of mistakes, I guarantee Chelsea hasn’t seen it.]
