Swing On In Dancer Profile – Miss Tina-Louise King

Name, Rank & Serial Number to start..
Tina-Louise King aka Miss Tina Von Squeeze

How did you find us and get into Swing Dancing.
I was a bit of a Rockabilly in Sydney back in the 80’s (yes I’m that old), but had kind of fallen out of the whole scene as I got older and started having kids…as you do. After moving to the Gold Coast 14 years ago, I discovered Wintersun and loved seeing all the vintage cars, clothes and music. It sparked up my interest again – so I took some RocknRoll dance classes. I never knew about swing dancing until I saw some swing dancers at a club one night and I loved it! After that night, and a few “reds”, I decided to try out swing dancing 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back. It’s now my Happy Place!

Tell us a bit about yourself, what do you do/business/hobbies/etc?
I work as a Senior Designer for a Sports Swimwear brand on the Gold Coast. I design their fabrics and create ranges, as well as manage the website, take photos and spend way too much time on social media haha. I also enjoy painting and drawing for myself when i get a spare 5 minutes ?

Tell us something random about you!
I used to be a professional Tarot Reader and had a Psychic Line!

A Promenade! I love the idea of strolling along a promenade with a handsome lead on my arm and it sounds very swish! haha.
