More on Jason
Jason Donahoo has an extensive Lindy Hop background and moved into West Coast Swing as his specialty almost 10 years ago. Jason now competes on the pro circuit for West Coast Swing and teaches classes regionally, coaches students to success, and loves to teach the language of West Coast Swing. Being able to speak both “languages” he’ll be able to break down your questions and give you tips/tricks to be able to dance with anyone!
