Shani a Balboa and Swing dancer from sunny southern California where the original dances were danced. She is honored to have honed her social dance skills and footwork under the guidance of legendary dancers Willie Desatoff, Hal and Marge Takier, Bart Bartolo, Jack Carey and many others. And although she has competed, placed and won several major competitions, she mainly enjoys social dancing and inspiring others to love balboa and swing.  She is best known for her fast, syncopated Balboa footwork and her soft connection – which has been said to feel like a ‘warm hug’.

Shani是一名Balboa和摇摆舞者,她来自阳光明媚的南加州,也是Balboa的发源地。她很荣幸在传奇舞者Willie Desatoff、Hal & Marge Takier、Bart Bartolo、Jack Carey等大师的指导下练习了她的社交舞蹈技巧和步法。尽管她参加大赛并取得很好的名次,但她主要享受社交舞本身,并鼓励其他人热爱Balboa and Swing。她以其速度,切分式的Balboa舞步和柔软的连接而闻名。 – 据说她的连接感觉像是一个“温暖的拥抱”。
