Janez started dancing in 2008 when he went to a bar, joined a crash-course and danced until 5 a.m. He enjoyed it so much, that he wanted to know more and dance more. The thing he loves the most about dancing is the ability to connect with a random person and make them enjoy the dance and make them smile. Priceless.
Petra played volleyball since she can remember, but she always knew she wanted to dance. At the age of 13 she was introduced to the rockabilly scene and she learned my first steps. After a while she started dancing Lindy Hop she fell in love and this love still lasts.
Dóra started focusing on the swing dances in 2009 however has a really matching background. She has started folk dancing at the age of 3. Also she is a trained violin player and teacher.
Dóra’s main focus is on social dance, her strengths are improvisation, smooth technique and musicality.
She started to teach regular Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz classes in Budapest since 2013 September with Marcell Bendik. She is also teaching Solo Jazz workshops, Lindy Hop weekend workshops, and choreographing performances both home & abroad.
She wanna share her passion about the swing music – and how can we react for that music. How can we match for the music? How should we listen the music? She tries to open the dancers ears and hearts for the different instruments, for different melodies, and for the different RHYTHMS (as her life is all about that!)
Tarek was dancing Northern Soul for a very long time, a few years ago he discovered Lindy Hop and started to follow his new passion. He is teaching regular classes in Vienna and was also teaching in some neighboring countries like Croatia, Slovenia and Czech Republic.
He loves the original vintage style of the dance and is inspired by dancers, like Al Minns, Leon James, John Bubbles and of course Frankie Manning. He watches and analyses vintage clips in every detail, especially from dancers from Harlem New York and shares this knowledge in his classes. He owns a very unique, clean and raw style, like the dancers back in the days.
