Photography – Sam Canner

After several years of being fascinated by swing dancing, Sam finally began dancing in the summer of 2018 after his friend invited him to take a lesson at Naptown Stomp. He quickly fell in love with swing after joining Naptown and actively participated in their weekly dance events. During this time, Sam also began photography and would bring his camera to the weekly Stomping Grounds to practice his new hobby.
The only thing Sam adores more than swing dancing is the people who dance. After travelling from St. Louis to NYC, he noticed how kind and welcoming the Swing community is and he is proud to be a member of the swing dance community and contribute by capturing the pure joy people experience when dancing.
