Drea began swing dancing in 2010, starting with Lindy Hop and Charleston. It didn’t take her long to discover a love for boogie woogie and, although she always wanted to be a ballerina when she was a kid … she ended up as Queen of the Hop. She co-founded the original Bees’ Knees rock’n’roll troupe, Rock Sock the Boogie, working with her partner Glen to create energetic and memorable choreographies.
Drea especially enjoys teaching beginner swing and rock’n’roll; her students always appreciate her enthusiasm and patience, and she loves to see how her students progress over time. She continues to develop her own dancing, taking on Balboa, tap and solo jazz. And she continues to marvel at just how much dance has changed her life.
