Brennar Goree & Torri Smith are US Open Swing Dance Champions! Brennar, from Virginia Beach, VA, and Torri, from Murrieta, CA, have overcome a 3000-mile distance to bring together a fusion of swing and shag that they proudly call Swag. Since partnering in 2007, Brennar & Torri have won the youth US Open Youth Swing titles for 2007, 2008, and 2009. Torri also became the first female competitor to win both the Showcase and the Classic divisions at the US Open last November, competing in showcase with Benji Schwimmer. Together, Brennar & Torri placed 2nd place at the US Open with their Shag team, Southern Dozen. The pair continues to utilize their extensive dance backgrounds in new, innovative ways while staying true to the foundations of each dance.
