Javier Johnson


Javier Johnson learned to feel the music in Atlanta in early 2005 and literally has not stopped dancing since that day. Now living in the Hartford area, he has founded Lindy Circle (Hartford Underground), been President of the Connecticut Lindy Exchange, and travels to teach and compete at events around the country.  While Balboa is his specialty, Javier is also a great Lindy Hop and Charleston dancer.
