Who We Are

Lainey Silver

Lainey is a (badass) swing dance teacher and performer in Brooklyn. When she’s not swinging out on the dance floor, you can find her hiking, drinking delicious cocktails, or hanging upside down in circus class.


    • Summiting Mount Kilimanjaro
    • Waltzing in the Hofburg Palace (Vienna)
    • Fist pumping in Ibiza
    • Witnessing the 2014 Ukraine Revolution
    • Teaching swing dance in Helsinki and Athens (not at the same time obvi)
    • Kissed a stingray right on the lips in Grand Cayman

    Lainey’s traveled to 30+ countries. She loves jamon and hates cliche bios. She’s rad. Fin.
