We’re sad to announce that Tatiana has suffered an injury to her ankle and will not be able to join us this weekend. She is so upset she can’t join the Seattle community, especially after this event has been delayed multiple times. We wish her a VERY speedy recovery, and we will miss her fun, energetic personality and dance expertise. Hopefully she and Jordan can return to Seattle again soon!
For this coming weekend we are very fortunate to have US Open Champion Victoria Henk stepping in to teach with Jordan. These two compete together in Strictly Swing all the time, winning multiple titles in the division, including the US Open! They can’t wait to share their knowledge and love of West Coast Swing with you all!
Are you ready to spend the weekend learning from perhaps the most well-known and influential couple in West Coast Swing? Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollmann are living legends in the WCS community and they’re coming to Seattle. They travel 47 weekends a year all around the world to teach, compete, judge, choreograph and perform, and now they’re coming to the Pacific Northwest just for you! No matter if you’re a novice or an all-star, everyone can learn something amazing from Jordan and Tatiana.

- Six hours of group lessons to improve your dance skills and technique
- Kick off the weekend on Friday at Century Ballroom with a group lesson and dance

Jordan and Tatiana have had a successful partnership for 22 years. They are 11-time U.S. Open Classic routine division winners, have 20 U.S. Open titles each, and in 2019 were inducted into the Walk of Legends. They are 6-time NASDE Champions and hold multiple Grand National Championships titles. At the UCWDC World’s event they were given the Star Award for the “Couple with the Most Impact on Swing,” and Jordan won “Best Swing Choreographer.” Their TV and movie appearances include 30 Seconds to Fame, Star Search, Good Morning America, The Polar Express, and Love N’ Dancing.
