Mary Freitag began DJ'ing sweet sweet swing music in her college town of San Luis Obispo, CA. After graduating, she moved back home to LA and has been DJ'ing it up at bunches of venues in LA and dance events (both Lindy and Balboa) all over. Mary loves playing the music that inspires her to dance which consists of good old classic 30s and 40s swing with vintage blues sprinkled on top - yummy.
Kyle has been passionate about swing music and dancing for the better part of 15 years now. Through these many years, he has experienced the dance community evolve and mature from the neo-swing revolution to big-band fervor to small group madness. Thankfully, most of us, have moved well beyond those neo-swing days and into original, classic swing‚Ä¶and are so much happier!
