About Me
Michele Adams Photo 3

A Native Californian, I started my dance career early by focusing on gymnastics for several years. After several broken bones I became actively involved in playing musical instruments. At age 13, played drums for my school band. In my 1st year of high school I decided to challenge all the boys who played trombone. I played trombone in her High School Jazz Band participating in statewide competitions. While playing in the Jazz Band, I learned to play the piano and guitar. I then became interested in Marching Band and made the auxiliary group of “Tall Flags” and became team captain for the next four years.

My studied included choreography and attended special workshops and band camps. In college I studied Jazz and Ballet. After moving to the Los Angeles area, I continued to study Ballet, with professional coaching in Ballroom and International Latin from Victor Veyrasset, David Hamilton and Donald Johnson.

I became the owner of Swingtime Dance Studio in 1992. While running Swingtime, I starting competing professionally in the UCWDC (United Country Western Dance Competition) Division 1 (top level of divisional competition) by winning multiple Grand Championships and then competed in the 1st UCWDC World Championships in the Masters Division, winning 4th place overall. I began dancing with Jim Farhadi. We were undefeated in Division 1 until Worlds in 1996 where About Me we tied for 1st place then lost to a tie breaker, winning 2nd overall. The following year we competed in Masters for the 2nd time until the partnership ended. 

I have been teaching and judging since 1992 for Country and Swing dance competitions domestically and internationally and have been competing with my pro-am students. We competed in the U.S.A. Swing Dance Championships several times including a few with the dance teams she choreographed.

I trained several years in Ballroom and Latin and received training in Swing and Country from professionals around the World. My expertise is in all Ballroom dance, Latin dances, Country Western couples and line dances. I am known for
Swing and Hustle along with my fun hip hop classes and have taught these dance classes at many dance events. I am a Master Instructor and have won many titles in choreography for big production teams.

I recently became the owner of Country Dance Sport. Country Dance Sport offers information about dancing, including Ballroom, Latin, Swing, and Hustle. Country Dance Sport focuses on Country Dancing. Look for upcoming events with Country Dance Sport, including cruises, workshops, private dances and many other fun events. Country Dance Sport offers a line of clothing that represents country dancing in the 2000’s, including competition wear as well as casual clothing and accessories.
