2019 Spirit of Jeff Troup Award Winner: Darcie Juarez!
This year, the Spirit of Jeff Troup Award goes to Darcie Juarez. We’ve decided to honor Darcie for her enthusiasm, cheerfulness, friendliness, sincerity, and spirit of inclusion which make her not only a treasured mentor for new dancers, but also a great role model for seasoned lindy hoppers. Darcie happily dances with anyone — lead or follow — regardless of their experience, ability, or dance role. Darcie supports all corners of the Portland swing dance scene with regular attendance at most social dances in our community, and continuously demonstrates her passion for dancing and teaching, all while maintaining a busy schedule raising a family and running her own business. We are fortunate and thankful to have such an admirable and deserving swing dance ambassador among us. Thank you, Darcie!
