Terry Gardner is a Swing DJ, dancer, instructor, promoter and the creator of www.tcswing.com, Minnesota's most popular swing website. Thanks in large part to his dad, he grew up listening to traditional big band music. He has always had a love for the music and discovered the dance in April 1997, when a friend brought him to his first dance lesson. Since that day, he has attended many national workshops as well as worked for Artspectrum at the American Lindy Hop Championships as both the stage manager and as the event emcee. He has also competed at ALHC in the Open Showcase division where he placed 5th in 2004 (Video).
Terry started teaching in 1998 where he honed his skill under the tutelage of Cindy Gardner locally and many of the top instructors in the world including Frankie Manning, Ryan Francois and Kenneth Norbelie, three of his favorite leaders. He teaches swing dance locally, regionally and nationally.
Terry is the house DJ for Late Night Swing in Minneapolis and has DJ'ed for the American Lindy Hop Championships [CT], AB Swing Challenge [IA], American Open [FL], Dayton Lindy Exchange [OH], Star of the North Games [MN] as well as weddings, public dances and private parties.
