Living Legend

Cary with Margaret Batiuchok. In her early 30’s while a pre-med student at NYU, Margaret met George Lloyd, an African-American “Savoy Ballroom 400 Club” dancer (twice her age) and just six months later they won the 1983 Harvest Moon Ball at Madison Square Garden. Margaret began teaching, performing, promoting, producing, and writing. She co-founded the New York Swing Dance Society (NYSDS) in 1985, when there was no organized Swing dancing in New York. The NYSDS became a mecca for all generations, races, and level of dancers, with the weekly dances consistently drawing 300-500 dancers.

Those days were the tip of the iceberg. Still an avid performer, teacher, judge and advocate, Margaret was inducted into the National Living Legends of Dance in 2012. Tour New York with Cary and you never know who might swing by!
