Case Study

John Lindo

John Lindo is an International Award-winning West Coast Swing Dance Champion, Instructor & Judge. He is also the Event Director for a growing list of swing dance events around the country.

John is a man of style, grace and humor. Above all, he is one of the most joyful advocates of swing dance. Dancers literally flock to John because of his passion for the dance. When we created his website, the focus was providing John an easy-to-update event calendar to keep his international following informed about his appearances at dance comps and workshops around the world, throughout the year. It has grown into a hub for all of John’s enterprises.

As John’s needs changed, he reached out to Viva Design Studio to create new websites for the growing roster of weekend Competition/Championship events that John and his co-Event Directors host each year. In 2020, we created three new sites: Liberty Swing Dance Championships, Freedom Swing Dance and Philly Swing Classic. In 2021, we also created a new website for Rose City Swing , and Viva is responsible for content updates and overall care of the US Open Swing Dance Championships website.

At Viva, we’re passionate about Swing Dance ourselves, and we have also designed websites for a few of our other friends in the community, from the über-creative Kristen Shaw, All-Star dancer/instructor, professional video editor, promotional video creator, TikTok enthusiast and new Event Director of Countdown Swing Boston, to the legendary Phoenix 4th of July Dance Convention, and the North Carolina-based Trilogy Swing.

And, we did a ton of work in 2022 on the World’s Largest West Coast Swing Party website–that’s right: MADjam!

Other dance related sites include: Professional Swing DJs: A group dedicated to curating monthly Top 10 Swing song lists, headed by Josh Angel and Ruby Lair! And a new and improved NASDE website.

Dancers wanna dance. And they will travel to attend the best studios, socials and events. You owe it to them to promote your local studio, or appearances at national and international dance events. What better way to promote local and global recognition than with a well-crafted dance website.
