About Jean Veloz

Jean Phelps Veloz, the icon of the Hollywood-Style Lindy to new generations of swing dancers, provides a living bridge from the Los Angeles dance scene of the 1940’s to the present-day Lindy Hop revival that has swept the United States and the rest of the world since the late 1990’s.

Jean started dancing when she was a teenager. In 1943 she entered a contest at American Legion Stadium in Hollywood, where the prize was a Screen Actor’s Guild membership card and a dance cameo in the movie Swing Fever starring Kay Kyser and Marilyn Maxwell. Jean won the contest, her SAG card, and the opportunity to dance with Lennie Smith and Don Gallager in the feature-length movie.

Jean stopped dancing in 1981 , but in 1992 she was persuaded to start dancing again. Thus , she began to make appearances at Lindy Hop events around the world including Marcus and Barbl’s Rock that Swing in Munich, Germany, the Virginia State Open; Gottaswing’s in Washington DC’s annual Groovie Movie event, Camp Hollywood, Herrang Dance Camp and many many more including SEA Jam 2014 at Bangkok , Thailand where this video was recorded.
