Ben Morris


Ben Morris is one of the best WCS dancers, choreographers, performers and instructors in the World. He is just too good at combining technique with fun in his dance.

Both a Champion Lindy Hopper and a Champion West Coast Swing dancer, Ben Morris began swing dancing at the age of 12. His first passion was (and still remains) Lindy Hop; he got to competing in Champions division in this dance as a teenager. He learned about West Coast Swing at New Year’s Dance Extravaganza, and subsequently started competing in this dance. His first routines performed in Young Adults actually combine Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing.

Ben is now a multiple World Swing Dance and U.S. Open Swing Dance Champion, a California Swing Dance Hall of Fame award winner… and a featured dancer in the movie Love N’ Dancing and the LeAnn Rimes Music Video “Swingin”. A graduate of UCLA, he currently lives in Orange County, California, running his weekly dance Swingin the Blues and regularly guest teaching at several local colleges. On the weekends Ben travels all over the world to teach, compete, MC, judge, and perform and is known for his fun dance style, infectious personality, and enjoyable workshops.
