OC Dancers Bring It Again at Camp Hollywood XVI!

/, Dance Camps/OC Dancers Bring It Again at Camp Hollywood XVI!

For the second time in two weeks, the ATOMIC Ballroom dancers threw down the gauntlet at another renowned swing dance camp, Camp Hollywood and the National Jitterbug Championships 2013!  It was an epic weekend with world-class dancing, classes and competitions (including an incredible underground battle competition featuring none-other than ATOMIC owners, Shesha and Nikki Marvin).

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.
