Christian Frommelt is a passionate swing dance instructor, performer, and social dancer who has dedicated his life to bringing people together through music and dancing. His unique style blends an emphasis on traditional swing movement and a highly personal character. In addition to his renown as a lindy hop and solo jazz dancer, Christian is the foremost aficionado of St. Louis Shag, which he learned in his hometown from original jitterbugs through interviews and close study. Some of Christian’s proudest accomplishments include winning the 2014 and 2015 Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown Battles in New Orleans, Louisiana and placing 1st in the Open Showcase contest at the 2015 International Lindy Hop Championships with partner Jenny Shirar. Christian is thankful to travel the world doing what he loves most–dancing–but is equally grateful and proud of his projects in St. Louis, including organizing the Nevermore Jazz Ball & St. Louis Swing Dance Festival, cultivating a strong community of dance through the St. Louis Jitterbugs, and learning jazz piano.
