Simone Swift is our acclaimed "Artist in Residence" and has been dancing since she was 6 years old! She was first trained in ballet, tap, and jazz at San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts but actually didn't fall in love with dance until she reached Middle School.
Once she graduated High School, Simone started training in Hip Hop at Grossmont College. From there, she joined a scholarship program at Culture Shock Dance Center and later began dancing with their professional Troupe as well as teaching Intermediate Hip Hop & Cardio Hip Hop.
In 2013, she became the Asst Director of Future Shock San Diego and played the role of the Rat Queen in Culture Shock's "Hip Hop Nutcracker". Today, Simone is the Head Director of Future Shock and still steals their Nutcracker show each year with her Rat Queen performance.
Simone has been a Back-Up Dancer for the artist Baby Bash and has danced in several music videos with a variety of pop artists including Flo Rida and Far East Movement. Dancing is Simone's exercise, her passion and most importantly, her fun. She dances to inspire and to be inspired, in hopes that she will be remembered for doing what she loves most. Simone welcomed a new addition recently and is the proud Mama of her baby girl, Marley.
Simone keeps a busy schedule but always brings it and makes sure our Torrey Pines Dance Team dancers
