This Week’s Instructor | Jeff Mumford

Jeff Mumford

Jeff Mumford found West Coast Swing in 2010 when he unknowingly ran across a Jack & Jill video on YouTube. He found local lessons to attend and quickly fell in love. Jeff will tell you that West Coast Swing literally brought him back to life emotionally while suffering from PTSD as a military combat veteran.

Jeff enjoys teaching, competing, and judging across the nation. He has won multiple Strictly and Jack & Jill competitions, rising to the Champion/Pro Division.

A former Chicago resident, Jeff currently resides in Pompano Beach, Florida and teaches group classes several nights per week as well as private lessons regionally. He loves teaching because he believes that this dance is an art form and every dancer has a story to tell with their own groove. The challenge and reward is teaching individuals how to bring it out for display on the social and competitive dance floor.
