Scene on Campus: Dancing with the Students at St. Mary’s University

Lane Swenson, a junior business management major and international relations minor at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas, teaches ballroom dance weekly to everyday students who want to learn something new.

Swenson began dancing as a teenager and started teaching classes a few semesters ago through the fitness center, hoping the students will find confidence in learning how to move and to dance.

Swenson and his students will perform a free Showcase on May 1, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. in the Bill Greehey Arena.
