The HOLLYWOOD HORNETS is a Los Angeles-based swing dance troupe founded in 2002. Since its inception, the Hornets have garnered three National Jitterbug Team Championships as well as several individual titles for its members. These accolades, along with their status as the longest-running troupe of its kind in Southern California, have established the Hollywood Hornets as a reputable force within the American swing dancing community.
They have performed at the Hollywood Bowl, the Seabiscuit DVD Release Party, the Frasier television series finale wrap party, and shared the stage with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Royal Crown Revue among others. The Hornets, having inaugurated the new Bowl stage in 2004, are honored to return for their third Swing Night appearance!
Dancers include: Joya Balfour, Ron Campbell, Sharlene Choy, Michael Convertino, Tunde Hrotko, Jenny Kim, Mae Lae Louie, Monica Montes, Quinn Nguyen, Timothy O’Neill, Giovanni Quintero and Christy Wilhelmi.
