Chanzie started her career as a gymnast, before graduating from The Edge Performing Arts Centre in Hollywood and proceeding to work with some of LA’s top choreographers in film, tv, music and stage.
Her true love and passion for preserving the history of classic Swing Dancing and its various styles has garnered her a position of respect as a celebrated teacher in the Swing world. She teaches various styles of swing, and has won many national titles and championships. She is perhaps most well known for dancing Collegiate Shag with her dance partner Steve Sayer, and helping propel the neglected and semi-forgotten style back into the forefront of the Swing Dancing scene. Her cheerful and playful attitude prove her a joy to watch.
