Laura Glaess
Austin, TX

Laura started dancing in 2001 in San Antonio. It wasn’t a very large scene, and her teachers hadn’t been dancing very long, but she quickly came to love lindy hop, the music, the history and everything involved.

Now Laura travels the world teaching, competing, performing and learning. She is a passionate believer in dancing with swing, with rhythm, and with presence. She is madly in love with jazz music and movement and strives to convey that love to everyone she encounters. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Laura is also an active participant in her home music and dance communities. She co owned a teaching company, The Lindy Project, participated in the Austin Swing Syndicate board, the Austin Lindy Exchange board, and she organizes community events, and any number of things to keep Austin one of the best scenes around.

In her spare time, she is currently studying to become a physical therapist and is learning to write and play music.
