Natalia Eristavi began swing dancing in 2010 at Atomic Ballroom in Irvine, CA, and quickly became one of LA’s up and coming Lindy Hop and Balboa dancers. Since then, she has won numerous competitions around the world, including at Lindy on the Rocks, Smokey Feet, and London Swing Festival. Drawing much of her inspiration from the original swing dancers from Southern California, she always seeks to maintain a level of attention to detail that is both authentic and creative. Her philosophies on dance stem from a desire for solid technique underneath a playful, musical approach to social dancing. Natalia loves to choreograph and perform but she is at the height of her self-expression when out on the dance floor dancing with different partners. There is something magical about creating an improvised dialogue of creativity with another person and she can’t get enough of it!
