Sylwia and Michał met for the very first time at lindy hop party in Warsaw six years ago.
For as long as they can remember a joy of sharing a dance with others and significant influence of music on their improvisation have been essential for their dancing. So has fast swing outs, Sylwia and Michał are crazy about them!

They radiate positive vibes and take pride in their individual approach to each student during classes. Paying attention to technique of movement, studying musicality and having fun of dancing direct their feet on the dancefloor almost every day.

Focus on the origins of jazz helps them understand the lindy hop. They respect both swing dance and music history and continuously search for inspiration taking part in international workshops and tap classes.

Isa and Víctor signed up for Lindy Hop lessons in the fall of 2014. Although dancing was something that never crossed their minds, the swing bug bit them both since the very beginning. Soon they became active members in their local scene in Valencia and started to attend international swing events.

They are teachers of Black Bottom Studio (Valencia) since 2016 which gives them another reason to travel in order to improve and learn as much as possible. They believe that continuous learning is the way to be able to offer their best to their students. Since 2015, they have attended more than 60 festivals (and going up every month :-p).

Apart from her endless energy, Isa is well known for her everlasting smile and the passion she throws into her dance.
What stands out in Víctor's dance are his team player skills. During the dance he focuses on taking care of his partner.
Their energy and good vibes both in the dance floor and at their classes are contagious.

Genia’s dancing story begun when she was 6 years old. Lindy Hop she met in 2006. Also she is a big fun of blues dancing. The dancing way keeps her excited, she finds out something new and really interesting all over the time. She hopes “this way will never reach the final destination ;-)“.

Genia was teaching in Russia, Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, France, Belgium, Taiwan; won some competitions in Ukraine, LHCC in Vilnius, Dragon swing, fast feet competition in Herrang.

Since 2015 Genia is a part of the project Shiny Stockings Chorus Line in Kiev.
During the last time was involved in many routines and 4 great shows “The Jazz Age” with Shiny Stockings Chorus Line and Kyiv Rhythm Kings band.

Dancing is an important part of her life. Such attitude to dance makes her not only good dancer, but also responsible and attentive teacher.
Mostly her classes are concentrated in how to connect dance more with music and enjoy your dancing. It's mix smoothness of blues, energy of lindy hop and music feeling inside of yourself.

Alexey Kazennov is an incredibly talented and inspiring swing dancer hailing from Russia.

He started dancing in 2013 with extraordinary enthusiasm, came to every single party. In 2015 he jumped into the Lindy life with both feet and began teaching, practicing and traveling all over the world, and has won a great number of competition titles (ILHC, Savoy Cup, Rock That Swing, and a long etcetera!).

Lindy hop, Authentic Jazz, Blues, and St. Louis Shag, there is nothing he can’t dance!

Alexey is famous for his personal style as a dancer, his big smiles, and most of all for his high energy on the dance floor! Do you believe that someone can dance for 24 hours non-stop?
