Campbell Miller first fell in love with social dance at Stanford University, where she performed in several vintage dance groups, partnered Richard Powers' classes, and earned the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts, the Dance Division's highest arts award. Today she feels lucky to have found her dream job teaching social dance on the faculty at The University of Texas in Austin and traveling the world to share her passion for dance.
As an instructor, Campbell's warmth and patience create an inviting atmosphere for all levels of dancers. Encouraging her students to value both technique and playfulness in their partnering and to discover their own style, she gives a wealth of information to both leads and follows so each partnership can be conversational and dynamic.
In Austin, Campbell is working to energize the dance community with new ideas and bring together dancers with different backgrounds. She especially loves the creativity of Waltz, the expressiveness of Blues, the subtleties of Tango, and the endless possibilities of Fusion how to combine elements from different styles to be able to dance to a wide variety of music.
Campbell teaches hundreds of University of Texas students each semester to sway, twirl, and dip their way into social dance happiness, and she wants the rest of Austin to experience this same joy.
In her free time, she practices yoga, plays fetch with the dogs, and eats strawberry cupcakes.
