Corey & Susan Manke

Corey & Susan are veterans of the swing dance community and have been dancing Lindy Hop since 2001 and Balboa since 2004. During this time, they have studied with many national & international instructors.

Being dance geeks at heart, Corey & Susan are particularly passionate about studying old timer dancers, as well as being inspired by today’s instructors. They are most comfortable on the social dance floor, teaching & participating in workshops, instigating late night shenanigans and occasionally competing. They have received placements at All Balboa Weekend and are regular finalists in several national competitions.

Corey and Susan are passionate about sharing the history of swing dance with the community, and strive to educate, preserve and promote these dances both locally and nationally. They have witnessed the evolution of the modern swing dance scene and provide a unique perspective for newer dancers.
