Sophy Kdep discovered her love for dancing in 1998 and it quickly became her favorite hobby. Dancing introduced her to husband Jason Miklic. Being able to share the love for dancing with Jason transpired into her passion and soon thereafter, her full-time career.
Sophy is one of the top West Coast Swing dancers in the Midwest. Her energetic style radiates through her instructions and everyone she dances with.
Sophy founded the XtremeWCSwing Dance Training program, a fundamental and practical training program designed for serious dancers of all levels. She is also the event director for Swingin' Dance Party, Indy Swing Bash and Meet Me In St. Louis Swing Dance Championships.
Jason Miklic began dancing West Coast Swing in 1995 for the same reason as most straight and single men his age...to meet girls. However, he quickly fell in love with the dance and realized that he wanted to take his dancing to the next level. He began competing in 1997 in the Jack and Jill and Strictly Swing and even the Country Western couples divisions.
Rising quickly through the ranks Jason decided to begin competing in both the Classic and Showcase divisions. He proceeded to gather top five and later, top three finishes throughout the National Association of Swing Dance Events (NASDE) tour events including the America's Classic and the Chicago Classic Showcase division championship in 2009.
Jason continues to dance and teach all over the world. He is also one of three principal instructors for the XtremeWCSwing Dance Training program, a fundamental and practical training program designed for serious dancers of all levels. Jason lives in the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area with his beautiful wife and two adorable little girls.
