Music and DJing with Ruby Lair

Let’s face it: good music is essential for a good night of dancing and a good dance in competition. To discuss the power of music – and the role of DJs in providing that music – we sat down with one of the best DJs around (and one of our personal favorites), Ms. Ruby Lair. We asked her how she got started, how she got so good, and how she thinks about playing music for both social dancing and competitions. We talked about the influence of DJs, current trends in our music, and how DJs can grow and improve. If you have opinions about the music we dance to, if you are a DJ or an aspiring DJ, or if you are just curious to learn more about music and DJing, this episode is for you.

  1. I have had the pleasure of dancing to Ruby’s selections the past couple of years. Thank you for offering an opportunity to get to know her better. And now I want to see a photo of her dog.
