He was introduced to swing dance at the SwingColumbus weekly dance just before his senior year of high school and since then his passion for swing has been consistently growing. When Viktor is not dancing you might find him playing guitar, hiking, or... watching swing dancing online. He loves meeting new people and sharing his love of dancing with others, beginners and experienced dancers alike.

Vice President

Reyna (Vice President): Reyna is a third-year undergraduate studying City and Regional Planning. She fell in love with swing dancing at the SwingColumbus weeklys during her senior year of high school, and hasn’t slowed down since. When she’s not swing dancing, she enjoys running, watching TED talks, and discovering new music. She loves the way that swing brings people together, so introduce yourself and ask her to dance! She both leads and follows, and particularly enjoys Lindy Hop, St. Louis Shag, and Balboa.

Advisor

Neil started swing dancing back in 1999, in an era when it was actually "mainstream cool" to do swing dancing. In 2000, he helped found the OSU Swing Dance Club as a student officer, and he has since served in every officer position, eventually becoming the advisor in 2004 when he started working for OSU (currently in the Office of Research as a web programmer). He's got a passion for music and how it shapes the dance. He dorks out about dance theory and finding new swing music to dance to.
