Meet Your Instructor

Mikaela Lewis is the owner and head instructor at Remix Swing based in Waterloo, Ontario. She has been dancing partner dances since 2009 when she joined the Ballroom Dance Club at the University of Alberta on a friend's insistence. After falling in love with international-style Ballroom and Latin dancing, she quickly became a teaching assistant and started to compete in amateur competitions. A love of dance and moving across the world for her career caused an exploration of different styles of dance, and in 2015 Mikaela discovered West Coast Swing. Since then she has competed, taught, and danced West Coast Swing all over the world and is constantly looking to improve her own dancing and teaching abilities. She is proud to be the community leader of the growing West Coast Swing community in Waterloo, Ontario since 2022.


Dance styles learned: 24+ partner dances, 6+ solo dances

Dance styles taught: 14


Mikaela's teaching embodies her experience with different styles of dance and different dance communities and cultures. She believes in teaching universal dance theory as a primary focus - so that the skills learned in her classes will improve your ability in any other style you want to learn.


Mikaela is also an engineer, world-traveler, novelist, and current PhD student at the University of Waterloo.
