The Epic Battle of the OC Swing Teams

3 Teams entered.  Only 1 will win.  But ALL of them blew our socks off!  Aubri Siebert does it again and the Fly Rights win their 3rd NJC Team Championship in a row!  The Bobbysox Brigade coaches and Atomic Instructors – Amber Villa and Jofflyn Valencia pumped up their team (and the crowd) from the sidelines to win 2nd – Check out their killer final transition/aerial!  And The Atomic Colliders round out the competition.  Each team was full of energy, threw down new and interesting transitions, some wild aerials and put on a show.

The Fly Rights (1st Place)


The Bobbysox Brigade (2nd Place)


Atomic Colliders (3rd Place)

About the Author:

Shani Brown discovered swing dancing in the late 90s as she eased out of gymnastics into a new physical activity. When she moved to Orange County in 2000, she discovered a whole new world of Balboa and Lindyhop - and she's been obsessed ever since! When she's not hitchhiking to dance events across the country, she's probably got her nose in a book...And when she's not dancing, she's probably talking about dancing or watching dancing and being a typical dance-geek.
