Musician ~ DJ ~ Dance Instructor/Performer

Lizzy has been heavily involved with music since she was a very little girl, starting with musicals at various churches and schools, and continuing with all the bands and choirs available to her throughout high school. She's sang and played with various bands in the South Sound area. You may have seen her singing down by Pike Place Market with the Pike Street Stompers in Seattle, at one of the many swing dances with Kevin Buster's Lunch Money, Al Forno Ferruzza's Pizzeria with Tarik Bentlemsani, or at The Royal Lounge in Olympia where she has played with the cream of Olympia's jazz scene: Joe Baque, Steve Luceno, Richard Lopez, Tommy Russell, and Dave McCrary in her band The Rhythm Caravan. In 2005, Lizzy started swing dancing. It was a natural result of her love of the swing era jazz that she played in high school. She loved it so much, she was practicing for 6 to 8 hours a day for three years! In 2006, she decided to share her love with others by teaching, performing, and DJing. She traveled to teach her first workshop in San Francisco in 2007. That same year, she was invited to DJ at the Herrang Dance Camp in Sweden. Lizzy feels very fortunate to have so many wonderful experiences that have been facilitated by music.
