Nick & Sylvia
Sylvia Sykes has been dancing since 1966, competing since 1970, and teaching since 1979. She has studied with many of the dance greats, including Frankie Manning, Dean Collins, Maxie Dorf, and Willie Desatoff. Her extensive studies and travels make her an expert on regional dance styles and she is known for her expertise in - and role in preserving - the older forms of Swing dance. Sylvia has been a member of the Santa Barbara Dance Alliance since its inception, has taught at the University of California, and has featured in numerous TV shows and in several documentaries on Swing dancing.

Nick Williams has embodied the passion and spirit of swing dancing ever since his first lesson in 1998. The depth of his understanding of Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Collegiate Shag stems from studying with the original dancers. His successes include World Lindy Hop Champion, US Open Swing Dance Champion, American Lindy Hop Champion, National Jitterbug Champion, International Lindy Hop Champion, Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown Champion, American Classic Balboa Champion and California Balboa/Swing Champion. He is also an accomplished choreographer and has been featured on the hit television show So You Think You Can Dance. Nick is known for his ability to break down movements and technique to create a fun and light-hearted learning environment. Nick is a two-time California Swing Dance Hall of Famer (2004 & 2010).
