DJ Peach – AZ

Phoenix’s favorite Georgia transplant, DJ Peach, fell in love with swing dance after being thrown into a class while in college. It became a way to connect movement to the music she had been introduced to and admired from an early age. In the last 6 years, she has organized and DJed multiple events on either ends of the country and hosted workshop events to support new swing DJs. She loves deep diving into jazz collections and finding jewels to share with fellow dancers. Check out her incredible sets:
