From Rome, Italy, Leonardo started his journey as a dancer at the age of 13 diving into Hip Hop and its related styles, where he performed, trained and competed nationally. After discovering Lindy Hop at a music and cultural festival in Rome, he hasn’t turned back since and his passion and love for the dance has only continued to grow. Apart from his strong focus and studies in Lindy Hop, he also teaches Blues, Authentic Jazz and St Louis Shag and has recently discovered his love for Tap Dance.
Leonardo believes that taking knowledge from various styles of dance allows for stronger understanding and awareness of body movement and therefore a better understanding and connection with the other person during couple dance.
Leonardo has been travelling, teaching, performing, competing & attending dance classes from the best international Swing Dancers around the world developing his own dynamic style and unique personality.
He looks forward to sharing with your community his best dance concepts!


Jenna continues to expand her dancing repertoire and share her love and knowledge of these dances with others. Although she enjoys pretty much any type of dancing and music you can move to, her first love is Lindy Hop. Her energy and passion create the perfect environment for learning, creating challenging yet applicable lessons.

Jenna has attended, coordinated, and taught various workshops and exchanges all across the globe. Some of her favorite highlights are performing at Benaroya Hall in The Jump Session Show and teaching for Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing. Above all else she believes that learning to dance should be fun. With over 10 years of teaching/coaching experience, she loves finding new ways to connect with other dancers on the floor and in the classroom.


From „Hip Hop“ to „Belly Dance“, „Voguing“ to „Swing Dance“… Nawelle loves to explore the plurality of the dancing world!
From a very young age, she felt a particular attraction for different styles of African American styles of music leading her to the roots of Jazz.
In 2009, she had a crush when she saw the famous swing dance scene of „Hellzapoppin“.
Since then, Nawelle never stopped swingin‘ and she is travelling as much as she can learning, teaching, performing and spreading her love for dancing.
With Alexia Legoueix, she built a Swing Dance organization in Paris, „Shake that Swing“ allowing Nawelle to share her passion with the local dancers.
One of her favorite quotes:
„When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.“ ( Wayne Dyer )
