Henry H. "Skip" Culver, Jr. is a member of the West County Swing Dance Club in St. Louis Missouri. Skip has had a lifelong love swing dancing. In the year 2004, inspired by his teacher and good friend Matt Auclair, he became a swing dance instructor certified by the St. Louis Imperial Dance Club. By carefully editing years of detailed, handwritten notes that he took at hundreds of classes and workshops, and with the unwavering encouragement of his dance partner Mary Kargel, Skip wrote Imperial Swing Dancing in order to preserve this stylized variant of East Coast Swing (sometimes called St. Louis Slot or Midwest Swing) for future generations of dancers. His popular manual is very easy to understand because he writes clearly without using ambiguous, "swinguistic" language when he describes the different dance moves. At the last Sweet Home Chicago convention, when Skip was asked who would benefit the most from reading his manual, he responded: “any dancer who wants to learn great swing moves that may be used with different dance styles and tempos of music. In other words,” he teasingly continued, “anyone who believes in kinetic rhythm by intelligent design!” Skip Culver is a frequent contributor of newsletter articles to swing dance clubs throughout the United States.
