Mary Blendermann is a swing dancer and DJ based in Sacramento, California. Her DJing style is informed by her yoga practice: each set is meditatively handcrafted, in the moment, to meet the dancers and the energy on the floor in that moment. Mary gravitates toward sweet vocals, wailing trumpets, and vibraphone solos, and she is often caught jamming out in the DJ booth. Her favorite artists are Johnny Hodges, Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie, and Maxine Sullivan. Mary leads primarily and is a vocal advocate for LGBT+ inclusion in the Lindy Hop community. If she’s not dancing, she’s probably running a brain scan, cooking, reading, or waking up way too early to bike to yoga class.

P.S. Mary seeks to contribute to a more open and inclusive Lindy Hop that celebrates the African-American heritage of the dance and that makes all dancers feel safe and welcome. She reserves the right not to work at events that do not share these priorities.
