Elizabeth Bankhead

 Elizabeth's first experience with swing dance was when she was 8 years old, dancing with her brother as a partner in a talent show. Swing surged again into her life as a teenager along with tap dancing and a little jazz. In 2003, during her university years (BYU), Elizabeth found Lindy Hop. Her heart found its home, its song, its dance. Though she has enjoyed ballroom, latin, clogging, african, tap and blues, Lindy is her soul's fabric.  Whether she is in Utah or traveling, Elizabeth believes that the purpose of dance is to experience joy. Anyone who sees her dance, cannot doubt she lives that belief. Her joy comes first through connecting with her partner and second in creative expression. Elizabeth is excited to teach with Salt Lake Swing, sharing not only her talent and skill, but her love for this art form.
