Exciting News! Our DanceWorks family is growing!

Help us welcome two new instructors —

Mike Carringer and Hailee Vaughan










Both of them are amazing West Coast Swing Competitors, dancing at the highest level.

Mike started dancing in 2011 with country dancing and after a year switched to West Coast Swing. He brings a fun and exciting energy on and off the dance floor. With a teaching style that focuses on proper body mechanics and natural motion within the body, he is an accomplished West Coast Swing dancer; winning Rising Star and NASDE Tour for Jack and Jill’s 2015. He now competes at the All-Star/Champion level. Mike currently teaches our WC Swing 1 class at 7:45 and WC Swing 3 class at 8:30 on Monday nights. Come meet Mike and give him a warm DanceWorks welcome!

Hailee is a passionate All Star West Coast Swing dancer who began dancing as a ballet and modern enthusiast. At the start of 2014 she was introduced to (and fell I love with) West Coast Swing. In addition to being the first Rising Star US Open Opus Division Champion – as well as the runner up for the US Open Cabaret division in 2014 – Hailee has reached a professional WCS level by her 2nd year of competitive dancing. She hopes to use her newfound experience and knowledge to help grow the community, and enjoys searching for progressive ways to encourage people of all life paths to pursue dance and movement. We are super excited to have her on board, and she will start teaching classes in March!
