Since the 1940s, Jean and her little brother Ray have been the toast of the swing dance world. Their style, class, and personalities have endeared them to generations of dancers.

Jean & Ray were top competitors on the dance floors of Los Angeles during the Golden Era of Swing. While Ray was serving in WWII, Jean Veloz was featured in several motion pictures, including the classics Swing Fever and Groovie Movie (the Lindy Hoppers bible).

Rediscovered by a whole new generation of dancers in the swing resurgence of the 1990s, they sit high atop that swing pedestal right where they belong.

Internationally acclaimed Lindy Hop instructors, choreographers, and performers, Rusty and Ron have been teaching together since 2003. At Rustys school, Lindy By The Sea, they developed The Track Series - Essentials for the Enthusiastic Lindy Hopper and produced the 6 DVD Series of this curriculum.
