fusion dance instructor & DJ
fusion dance instructor
Pomona Lake is a creative and enthusiastic fusion dance instructor who is passionate about developing and teaching fusion concepts that are grounded in her deep understanding of Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz and Contact Improv. Her dancing is playful, groovy and raw, with an emphasis on improvisation and spontaneity, and her teaching style is clear, intuitive, and light-hearted. She has won and placed in Lindy, Blues and Fusion competitions for her leading, following and solo dancing all over the US and Canada, as well as recently appearing in a major motion picture.
Pomona grew up dancing on the west coast of Canada, sneaking out of her parents' place in high school to go to house parties. Her music is decidedly funky; she incorporates hip hop, nu soul, and trap into her rhythm-centered sets, revealing her Lindy Hop and Blues roots. She makes a point to focus on showcasing music from queer people and people of colour in her sets, and will never refuse a solo dance battle.
