Shad Carter
I am the President of the USUSA Big Band Swing Club.

I enjoy solo routines and '20s Charleston.
I dance because swing connects me to the music on a deeper level than just listening to it.
I also dance because it connects me with other people. Swing dancing creates lasting friendships and fosters a culture of inclusion and community.

Lydia Neeley

I am the Club Chair, but please do not sit on me.

My favorite styles of dance are Lindy Hop and Blues. I like their musicality and the connection between partners for both styles of dance.
I am in the council because big band swing is really fun. I want to teach people how to swing dance and that it is a lot of fun.

Set the mood with a bit of Jazz. Dress to the evening with the fitting dance style. Feel the music and let the evening settle in. Social exchange, a hallmark of this historical American tradition, with greatest affair to Lindy Hop. 

Aye mate, didn't see you there.

I am the Elite Hall Coordinator.

Dancing is the best thing since sliced bread! Lindy hop is the favorite, but I am always open to new styles of swing. I love how dance brings people together and allows for deep communication.
I am part of the swing council because I have grown to love the swing scene at USU. I want to see it grow and become a big part of this community.
