Scott Blevins  
Scott Blevins

Scott Blevins found line dance in 1988 and began teaching shortly after at a local community center. Scott's passion for dance drove him to choreograph his first line dance "Bunkhouse Boogie" - and that's when it really all started. One dance turned into a few dances and, at some point, someone mentioned Scott should compete his choreography. Well, he won that competition and many thereafter. His wins earned him invitations to teach at dance conventions like this one and that only fueled Scott's dance passion. Over the years, Scott has tried to keep his choreography creative and fun, explore new areas of dance and music, and help to expand the world of line dance both socially and competitively.

Pam & Eagle

Pam & Eagle met at an Arthur Murray Dance Studio when they both started taking ballroom dance lessons. Their passion for dance led them to explore various forms of dance including line dancing and square dancing. In the 90's they were invited to join the Hardwood Shiners Dance Team and they enjoyed performing, competing, and, in general, having a wonderful experience as a part of this great group of people for over 10 years. During this time they began teaching line dance and DJing at various places in Fort Wayne, Indiana and the surrounding area. They have choreographed several line and partner dances but their true passion is sharing their love of dance through teaching others. They treasure the many friendships they have developed over the years in the dance community.
