Instructor BioCampbell Miller inspires her students with fluid body movement, an engaging teaching style, and a contagious enthusiasm for all types of partner dancing. A dancer since age 3, she discovered swing dancing in 1997 and instantly fell in love. At Stanford, she completed a dance minor while studying Computer Science, and after experimenting with several "normal" jobs, she realized her true passion was teaching dance. Today she feels lucky to have found her dream job — teaching social dance on the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin and traveling the world to share her passion for dance.
As an instructor, Campbell's warmth and patience create an inviting atmosphere for all levels of dancers. She encourages her students to value both technique and playfulness in their partnering and to discover their own style. She gives a wealth of information to both leads and follows so each partnership can be conversational and dynamic.
In Austin, Campbell is working to energize the dance community with new ideas and bring together dancers with different backgrounds. She especially loves the creativity of Waltz, the expressiveness of Blues, and the endless possibilities of Fusion — how to combine elements from styles like Blues, Tango, Waltz, and Swing to be able to dance to a wide variety of music. Campbell teaches hundreds of UT students each semester to sway, twirl, and dip their way into social dance happiness, and she wants the rest of Austin to experience this same joy. In her free time, she practices yoga, plays fetch with the dogs, and solves jigsaw puzzles.
