Mariel Manzone

Mariel began teaching West Coast Swing in 2010 after leaving the world of competitive ballroom dance (International Standard & Latin). In 2012, she co-founded The Swing Dance Studio to bring her unique methods of teaching movement to Boston-area WCS dancers. Prior to 2012, Mariel was a featured instructor, DJ, and marketing guru at another Boston-area WCS program, where she also co-ran Boston Dance Challenge (a WSDC event) in 2011 and 2012.

Mariel travels extensively as a competitor and instructor in the US and Canada. She draws on her rich education and movement backgrounds, including her recent Master's degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education in Mind, Brain, and Education. Her lessons are enhanced by her movement training in ballroom, yoga, and pilates, her past musical training as a violinist, and her extensive experience as a competitive athlete and coach. She is known for her creative lesson plans and her ability to provide supportive encouragement and tailored clear feedback to each student.
