Jessy Miller was classically trained in Ballet and Tap before finding her passion in Lindy Hop at the age of 19. It was initially her mother who wanted to start a new hobby and wanted company. Instead it was Jessy who fell in love with the culture and the music of the dance.

Jessy & Will train as much as they can and social dance as often as possible in London. In London, she is part of the London Jazz Works team, running socials and performances and teaching regular classes.

Will spent his pre-dance years in the world of professional rugby and tries to bring that same work ethic and energy to his dancing. Will with Jessy teaches classes and weekend workshops in their home city of London. A melting pot of creativity, the city offers endless inspiration to dancers and it has hugely shaped Will’s dancing. While Will tries his best to soak up as much of London’s dance scene as he can, he also travels abroad regularly to learn, compete and take in new ideas. You can expect Will’s teaching to focus on clean basics, interesting rhythms and power moves.

Isa and Víctor discovered Lindy Hop in the fall of 2014 and the swing bug bit them both from the very beginning.

They have been teachers of Black Bottom Studio (Valencia) since 2016. That’s why they have been attending swing events intensively since 2015, in order to improve and learn as much as possible. That feeling, still with them, is what keeps them motivated.

Isa and Victor believe that as guests in this African American dance, it’s essential to work hard in order to understand the values and history that comes with this culture.

Apart from her endless energy, Isa is well known for her everlasting smile and the passion she throws into her dance. Isa loves to immerse herself in the vast possibilities of swing culture in order to understand the roots of this dance.

What stands out in Víctor's dance are his team player skills. During the dance he focuses on taking care of his partner while paying a lot of attention to communicate the song’s rhythm through his body. When he’s not dancing he likes to spend time playing the piano and the guitar.

Their energy and good vibes in the dance floor and at their classes are contagious.
