Benji Thinks You Can Dance!
Benji lifts Heidi above his head on So You Think You Can Dance

Benji Schwimmer, the amazing dancer who took home the trophy in last season's So You Think You Can Dance, will be teaching a West Coast Swing Intensive and a special two hour jazz workshop in nearby Sturbridge Massachusetts.

West Coast Swing Intensive will be on Friday December 29 from 4 to 6pm, and the Jazz workshop will be held on Saturday December 30 from 6 to 8pm. The jazz workshop will include a question and answer session and a performance.

Benji and his partner (and cousin) Heidi Groskreutz will also be teaching other classes at the New Year's Weekend Dance Extravaganza. The two workshops are open to all interested dancers. You must sign up for the weekend if you want to take the other classes.

Contact Bill Cameron at billcameron@dancepros.net for more information.

Rhode Island's Entertainment Resource, Point magazine, has an interview with Benji and Donyelle Jones (his partner on SYTYCD) in its December issue. (pgs 26-27)

Benji Schwimmer is part of the famous Schwimmer family and has danced almost from birth. He started competing at 5 years of age with his cousin Heidi Groskreutz.

He, Heidi and her current partner Dmitry Chaplin all made it to the finals in the second season of So You Think You Can Dance with Benji taking top place.
