The teachers

Most of the classes are taught by Jamie Davies, a member of University academic staff,  and Katie Brooks, a PhD graduate of the University.

Dancing together as "The Swing Doctors", Jamie and Katie have many years experience of teaching and promoting swing dance in Scotland, on a strictly not-for-profit basis, at EUSDS, at Edinburgh Swing Dance Society (the 'town' society), and for a variety of other venues and groups. Their work in researching and promoting authentic swing dance extends outside Scotland too: JD has been elected a member of the International Dance Council of UNESCO (the United Nations Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.
