Mike Thibault

Mike started dancing Lindy Hop in 1998, and was a founding member of the RIT Swing Club. Since then he has traveled to dance all over the world, and taught in countless local and regional classes and workshops.  Mike teaches group and private lessons regularly and holds really rockin' dance parties at the Lindy Compound.  He has also become a sought-after DJ at exchanges, workshops, and camps all over North America.  In 2005 he thought up a crazy idea that ended up being called Stompology, now one of Groove Juice Swing's most successful events.  Now he is also one of the organizers of the Swing Out New Hampshire dance camp and head DJ for Frankie 100 in New York City.  In his spare time Mike likes to research jazz and dance history, spend time on various technological nerdery, and enjoy delicious wines and cheeses. Mike is very excited to be bringing the joy of Lindy Hop to a new generation of dancers.
