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
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.
