Ron Campbell started swing dancing with his wife, Robin, in February 1996. After a brief introduction to swing through a city Ballroom course (preparing for the "first dance" at their wedding later that year), Ron was hooked. He had found a means of expression for his joy for the music of 20s, 30s & 40s. Ron actually had to talk Robin into taking their first swing dance lessons. They never looked back.
Over the years, Ron has studied many forms and styles of swing dancing; East Coast, Lindy Hop (Savoy & Smooth), Balboa & Collegiate Shag to name a few.
Ron was one of the founding members of the Swing Shift Rhythm Club that performs regularly for local hospitals and institutions.
Ron is a member of the Hollywood Hornets, 3-time Team Division National Jitterbug Champions (2002, 2004, 2005). He and Robin also took 1st Place in the Preliminary Round of the 2002 Great Southwest Club Swing-Off at the Rhythm Club.
Ron and Rusty developed the Track and Master Track curriculums in place at Lindy by the Sea since 2005, and they co-produced the Track 6-DVD Series.
Ron began teaching Tuesday night Lindy By The Sea classes with Rusty on January 6th 2003.
