Kate Holden (she/her)
Marketing, DJs

Hailing from Delaware, this gal is a force to be reckoned with. With fierce wit and skilled fingers, this chick can make a mean meme. 


Kate Holden manages our social media marketing and lines up the best DJs in the business to keep Jazz Attack's floors packed with dancers. Be sure to ask for her favorite tunes of the week!


Nick Cruickshank (he/him)

Nick is Jazz Attack's president. He steers the ship and is a general jack-of-all-trades that keeps the organization dancing.

Nick loves dancing fast, swingin' out, and throwing (or being thrown) in some big air.

He vividly remembers being a total beginner at Jazz Attack, and is excited to dance with anyone regardless of level -- lead or follow. Snag him for a dance and swing out loud!

Matt Rapp (he/him)
Bands, Venue Manager

There are few things Matt would rather do than dance a smooth & groovy slow lindy or blues tune, except maybe watch the Emperor's New Groove.

Matt is Jazz Attack's venue & bands manager, ensuring that we all have a lovely space to dance in each week, and a  great band to dance to each month!

Meet the Team

Mike McDermott (he/him)
Teachers, Venue Support

Hailing from Delaware, this guy is a force. With wit and fingers, this dude can make a meme.

Mike manages our teaching lineup to help dancers of all levels find new ways to have fun dancing, and helps to get everything set up & torn down.


Irene Elias (she/her)

Irene has been swing dancing since her time at Swarthmore College, where she also served as Swing Treasurer and enjoyed occasionally teaching classes.


She prefers following in Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Blues, but can also (kind of) lead. She is currently a graduate student in ancient history at Penn.


Jenn Reddig (she/her)
Safer Spaces + Volunteering

A wild Jenn appears! Jenn uses her Safer Spaces attack to lower the defense of all attendees and make them feel welcome. She's also your go-to for volunteering info!


Her Jolly and Gentle nature makes Jenn a great addition to all teams.


Mary Rios (she/her)
Scene Liaison

She’s sassy, classy, and a little badass-y. This lady is always down to bring the party and bring you along with her.

Mary is Jazz Attack’s Philly Scene Liaison to connect you to all the amazing dance opportunities in Philly and beyond.
