GUEST DJs Guest DJ: Shana Worel
We’re happy to bring back one of our beautiful ladies of swing to the TSS DJ booth

She is a recent transplant to the southland and has quickly become a popular DJ, teacher, and dancer. She regularly DJs all around the LA/OC area and also is one of the organizers behind the very popular “Pasadena Balboa and Jam” aka PB&J.

We are happy to bring her talented musical stylings back to TSS, it’s Ms. Shana Worel!

DJ Shana Worel

Guest DJ: Vicky Chan
We are ecstatic to also bring back our most favorite versatile DJ back to TSS

She is one of the most loved dancers, DJs, and personalities, known not only in the southland but also around the world. She loves to travel to both dance and DJ, and I can only guess this is how she has become our most favorite versatile DJ, by bringing all the influence and exposure of Lindy scenes all over the world back to our DJ booths in the southland.

And of course, together with her husband Lance, she runs one of the most popular weekly dance venues in the nation LindyGroove. We are excited to have back Ms. Vicky Chan!

House DJs House DJ: Ben Yau
Teacher, dancer, choreographer, and co-owner of TSS, Ben Yau is a versatile DJ that loves to play music that keeps you dancing!

While Ben does have specific tastes in music, as House DJ he also relishes in playing complimentary to the Guest DJs to create an overall fantastic and fun night for all.
