Victoria Henk’s shenanigans began at age four with ballet and gymnastics, with hip hop and jazz soon joining the mix at age six. At the age of eight she starting training at the Schwimmer’s 5678 Dance Studio where she was quickly placed onto both the juniors West Coast Swing (WCS) and Jazz teams. Victoria’s passion and ability for both the solo dances and West Coast Swing was cultivated at the studio until she began to dedicate as much time to it is as she possibly could. When she began to compete she quickly met with success, culminating in her winning the 2014 NASDE All Star Tour and immediately afterwards beginning to place and final in Champions divisions. She now teaches hip hop at Buddy Schimmer’s Dance Center, continues to train at the Edge Performing Arts Center in LA with the top choreographers in the world, travels around the globe to teach West Coast Swing with her new partner Ben Morris, and is a full time student at a University. In her spare time she likes to…wait…spare time? What spare time?
