Iris Tarou

Iris discovered Lindy Hop in 2005 at the Fillmore Jazz Festival in San Francisco. And it was love at first site. She began dancing 2-4 nights a week in SF and quickly realized Lindy Hop wasn't just a phase but a new passion in her life.

Life has come full circle for Iris, as she learned to dance primarily at The 9:20 Special. Her enthusiasm and love for the dance are obvious through her teaching. Iris' students quickly see she truly loves this dance and wants her students to feel the same.
