DJ Curtis Ellis

Joining us from Chicago, Illinois! Curtis ignited his passion for Swing Dancing in 1996, and continued fueling his social dance experience into the early 2000’s. He stepped into the Blues Dancing scene in 2009, taking second place in that year’s BluesSHOUT! Solo Cuttin’ competition. Curtis fell in love with the dance and the music; teaching, competing, and performing with his dance partner Elizabeth Tuazon. They have made finals and won several competitions for their dancing and performing, and the two enjoy sharing their love of creative movement with the blues dance community. Curtis values connection, musicality, and unbridled joy in his dancing. As your DJ, he hopes to share some of his passion and joy with you.
