A young teaching veteran of 13 years, Ramona's dancing reflects the beauty, rawness, and rhythm, that make lindy hop the best dance in the world. Ramona is known internationally for her wildly graceful style and spontaneity on the dance floor. Her talent was spotted early, for she was only 14 when the late great Frankie Manning asked her to open with him at the Mid-Summer Night Swing series at Lincoln Center.
Ramona calls Melbourne Australia home, but is rarely there due to a busy teaching schedule that takes her to numerous Lindy Hop festivals around the globe.
In class, Ramona values the lead and follow. Her goal is to help students find clarity in their movement, so that they may have more fun and expression on the dance floor. She is perpetually guided by the vision of her greatest teacher, the late Frankie Manning, thank you always. In the end, dancing the lindy hop connects to something greater and beyond the individual. It's a community force that sustains us through the hard times, and gives us a way to celebrate the joys of our lives.
