Jacob Thackery

Circa 2015 at Purdue, Jacob was restless sitting in classes all day. To break up the day and having never stepped foot on a dance floor, Jacob stumbled into a class named simply “Dance 101”. Quickly thereafter, things snowballed into a cycle of meeting people, being invited to things, meeting more people, and going to more things. One of these things was Purdue Night Train. Because of the fun atmosphere, Jacob spent a little too much time doing activities ranging from taking classes, traveling, and eventually to teaching classes. After graduation, Jacob spent some time in Northwest Indiana and danced semi-regularly around Chicago. Jacob moved to Indy in fall of 2018 where he has been dancing regularly since. Jacob feels that dancing is most fun when he is well connected with the music and his partner.
