A little more about Campbell from her website bio:

Campbell first fell in love with social dance at Stanford, where she performed in several vintage dance groups, partnered Richard Powers' classes, and earned the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts, the Dance Division's highest arts award. Today she feels lucky to have found her dream job -- teaching social dance on the faculty at the University of Texas in Austin and traveling the world to share her passion for dance.

At home, Campbell is working to energize the Austin dance community with new ideas and bring together dancers with different backgrounds. In her travels, she focuses on Blues dancing and Fusion -- how to combine elements from styles like Blues, Tango, Waltz, and Swing to be able to dance to a wide variety of music. Her classes strike a unique balance between technique and play, giving students just enough detail to challenge themselves but also plenty of confidence to be creative on the dance floor.

Her talent, warmth, and pure joy for teaching and dancing create a memorable learning experience that has students coming back for more!
