    *An autographed photo of my glass memorabilia that has my 1983 US OPEN costume and photos and the first USOPEN Program.
    * A Photo of her 1983 Pearl White USOPEN jacket and more....
    *Video link of Dance Fever Contest from Mary Ann Nuñez Legendary Dancer, multi Dance Champion, International Judge / Instructor, Hall of Fame Inductee.

    Mary Ann Nunez is tiny, totally hip, and is rated as one of "the best West Coast Swing dance professionals in the World today."She’s an energetic presence on the workshop and competition dance floor at major dance events across the country and internationally too!.

    Her first time dancing was in 1981 at country bar called the 'Cowboy' in Anaheim, California with the Country Two-Step and she was hooked (Little did she know she would later become a dominate figure in the swing dance world.). She learned to 'swing dance' with all these great dancers who were there at the time. This gave her a great education into the real world of swing with its history and these legends.
    Dance legend 'Dean Collins' asked her to be on his dance group for the Steve Allen Television Special titled 'In The Swing' and partnered her up with Lance Shermoen. What a paring it turned out to be. They went on to win numerous contests (including 2 time winners of the 'U.S. Open Swing Dance Championships' held in Anaheim and 2nd place on 'Dance Fever') plus performing together at various locations locally. Dean Collins helped choreograph the first routine in 1983 and dance legend Kenny Wetzel in 1984. Mary Ann retired 'undefeated' from 'Showcase Dancing' with Lance after 1984 but continued to enter and place 1st place in many Jack & Jill contests.

    All though retired from the competition circuit since 2014, she still actively teaches and judges at Dance Events and Clubs plus works with Competitors through Coaching and Choreography.

    Mary Ann’s trademark is her detailed and impressive musical interpretations, her super-human following ability and classic style down to the most minuscule flurry or background beat while looking classy and like a lady the whole time. Whatever the music is doing, you’ll see her feet, body isolations and motions reflecting it in perfect timing and rhythm.

    She is a master at many styles of dance, not just West Coast Swing and has many years of teaching and competing in West Coast Swing, East Coast Flying Lindy, Carolina Shag, St. Louis Shag, Balboa, Country-Western, Wedding Dances, Line dances such as the Electric Slide, Motion Study Line Dances and her Footwork Specialty Line Dances, Night Club Two-Step, The Monterey, Salsa, etc. Mary Ann now lives in Garden Grove, California, and she’s wildly popular on the competition & dance event workshop circuit, both here and abroad.
