Doriel started dancing with Groove Juice Swing when one of his friends dragged him there, but as soon as he saw it, he knew it was the thing for him. Once he got started, he couldn't get enough. Doriel learned by participating in Lindy Hop boot camp at the Lindy Compound, taking private lessons, and traveling for workshop weekends such as the International Lindy Hop Championships where he placed second in the Junior Division in 2012. His background in performing, gymnastics, acrobatics, and martial arts strongly influence his dancing style. His recent travels to Herrang Dance Camp in Sweden inspired a strong connection to the Harlem roots of the dance, which shows in his classes when he places importance on rhythm, partnership, and personal freedom in the dance. Lindy Hop provides him the opportunity to combine his love for movement and rhythm; his playful movement and the smile on his face truly exhibit his happiness whenever he dances. He is thrilled to be teaching with Groove Juice Swing and sharing his passion with others.
