About Natalia

Natalia Rueda

Natalia began her career in the arts industry in Colombia, where she was born and raised. She holds 1st place titles in singing competitions, Cheerleading and Karate, a strong foundation on which she developed her athletic and vivacious dance and performance style.

After moving to Canada, she discovered Swing dancing in 2005 and co-founded Swing Dynamite, the city’s first dedicated Swing school and performance troupe, in 2006. Natalia started dancing Lindy Hop at age 17 and, at age 19, she had already led a Swing dance team to take a silver medal at the Canadian Swing Championships, one of the many places where she now teaches and/or judges competitions.
