Amos' clumsy introduction to the dancing world was in 2007 when he was dragged by a friend to the weekly swing dance at the VFW here in Colorado Springs. After being wowed by the other dancers he decided to give dancing a chance. At Amos' first Lindy Hop class it was love at first swingout. And it was at that moment that he knew what had happened, he had become an addict. He began to take every class that was available for him to take, and dance every chance he could afford to do so.
Since then Amos has attended classes and workshops from an assortment of local and national instructors, and has been to exchanges in several cities around the country. Amos also spends as much time social dancing as possible and usually dances four to six nights a week in various cities around Colorado.
Amos joined Focus on the Lindy in 2008. Amos' love for teaching comes from his desire to show people how to love dancing as much as he does. He constantly pushes his students to learn everything they can in a class and on the social dance floor.
Amos' styles range from fast paced Lindy Hop to slow and sassy Blues dancing. Due to his drive to constantly grow and better himself, on and off the dance floor, Amos' dancing consistently changes. His goal as a dancer is to still be dancing and learning when he is old enough to tell his grandkids about the time way back when computers sat in front of you instead of being plugged into that port on back of your neck.
