About Trendlyon Veal

A native of Louisiana by way of Texas, Trendlyon discovered her love for dance while she was in junior high. She and her sister were choreographing hip hop dance routines to enter dance competitions and walked away with several wins! While living in Texas, Tren was introduced to swing by a coworker. She took a dance class and was bit by the bug. She has been dancing and competing ever since. Tren’s distinctive dance style makes you stop right in your tracks to observe the preciseness of her moves, her animated smile, energy and enjoyment of the dance.

She has competed and placed within the top 5 of some of the most recent Champion Jack and Jill and Strictly Swing competitions in the country. She is also a member of the National Hand Dance Association in Washington, DC. Her talent and love for the dance has led her to teaching hand dance and west coast swing to youth and adults.
