Nisreen Almazouni been dancing for over 20 years and teaching for the past ten in New Jersey and the Tri-State area. "I learned the Lindy Hop in New York City from iconic instructors who studied with Frankie Manning, and I had the the pleasure and honor to take lessons with him as well. I performed professionally with many Lindy Hop groups in NYC (such as the Lindy Hop All-stars and the Big Apple Lindy Hoppers) and continue to perform in summer Jazz festivals, private gigs and my own performance classes. I am passionate about teaching and helping my students build a solid technique foundation. I also aim to foster their unique sense of musicality for the dance. All while having fun. I currently teach group lessons at Swing Remix in NYC as well as my ongoing lessons in NJ."
