Jan O’Shea is regarded by most as Australia’s No.1 Lady of Swing and was publicly dubbed by the late great Frankie Manning who travelled to Australia for 10 years to workshop and teach with Jan right up until his passing in 2009, as “Australia’s Queen of Swing.” Jan commenced dancing in 1954 and by 1957 was the Australian Champion of Jitterbug which was the final Jitterbug competition in Australia until the revival of Lindy Hop/Jitterbug in the 1990s of which Jan was an integral and influential part of. Several times during the period 1959 – 1964 she was an Australian Champion of Rock n Roll dancing. In 1998, after 42 years dancing, she achieved what no other competitive dancer in the world had achieved by winning the Open Invitational Harlem and in 1999 won
the Australasian Open Invitational Championships in Lindy Hop/Jitterbug, Harlem/Slow Swing and Rock and Roll. Jan is the first fully qualified Rock n Roll dance teacher in Australia and she is currently Head of the Rock and Roll Faculty for FATD (Federal Association Teachers of Dance) and Head Adjudicator at the Pan Pacific Rock & Roll and Swing Dance Championships.
