James began social dancing by taking an Introduction To Social Dancing course at Oklahoma State University during the last semester of his Ph.D. program.  James then moved to Davis, CA for his postdoc where his dancing really took off.  The vast majority of James’ dancing instruction has taken place at Spotlight Dance and Fitness in Sacramento, CA and consisted of primarily ballroom dancing, but also included many club dances: hustle, salsa, and west coast swing.  James learned Lindy Hop from a combination of classes at Spotlight, Midtown Stomp, and classes offered by Ria DeBiase.  After moving to Omaha, NE, James increased his Lindy/Charleston/Balboa repertoire through the Omaha Jitterbugs.
