(1950s rock n' roll, 1950s juvenile delinquency, teen idols, 1950s teen fashions,
hot rod culture, rock n' roll dance styles, teen movies of the 1950s.)
Michael Quebec began teaching rock n' roll era dances in 1995. He originally started with the Savoy Style Lindy Hop and the East Coast Swing, but since his interest has always been expressing his love of 1950's and early 1960's Rock and Roll through dance, he switched to the Smooth Style when he noticed it was that version of Lindy that was performed in movies made in the 1950's featuring Rock and Roll acts. (One of the reasons that he got into teaching was because nieghborhood friends, upon finding out about his swing dance knowledge, asked "Where can I find swing dance lessons near me? I don't want to have to drive all the way to San Francisco every weekend!")
He has been featured in the Argus, the Philippine News, KTSF's television show "Pinoy Pa Rin", and he performed on both KTVU Channel 2's "Hot August Nights TV Special" and in 2000 he and his performance team open for Rock and Roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis in San Rafael.
He he has taught professionally at the Metronome Ballroom in San Francisco, San Jose DanceSport, The Rhythm Street Dance Studio in the Dublin/Pleasanton area and he has also done volunteer work teaching teenagers for LOV Newark, James Logan High School, Newark Memorial High, San Lorenzo High, and Clover Middle School in Tracy.
