Javier

Music has been in Javier’s life since he joined his first choir at age 4, and later he developed an interest in listening and making all kinds of music ranging from Renaissance to Folk or Swing.

Native from Valencia (Spain), it was there where he attended his first “Clandestino” thanks to local friends. He immediately knew he wanted to dance Lindy Hop. His career as an engineer took him to Madrid where he finally tried his first triplesteps, developing later an interest in other vintage dances.

He’s based in Dublin since 2016 from where he continues to attend festivals around the world and teaches regularly.

Marta

Marta has been dancing since she's seven. From ten years of contemporary and other solo dances she found Folk and then Lindy Hop. She fell in love with the music, the energy and the social dance.

Marta has been dancing Lindy Hop since November 2011 and is still learning and developing her dance. Going to workshops, participating in competitions. Learning other Swing dances.

Marta's style is playful and feminine. Her favourite things in Lindy Hop are musicality and points of connection.

Michael

After a chance encounter with swing dancing in a late night jazz club in Chicago, Michael was hooked line and sinker and has never looked back. He has been traveling throughout Ireland, Europe and North America for many years now studying, teaching, competing, and having the time of his life dancing lindy hop, charleston, balboa and blues.

He recently returned to Ireland from Canada and is excited to have the chance to share his passion and knowledge in Dublin.

Olga

Olga was born and raised in Lisichansk, Ukraine, but the Emerald Isle has been her home for sixteen years now. Here she began studying the variety of the beautiful swing era dances over six years ago, and ever since it’s been a whirlwind adventure of taking every class and workshop she could afford, discovering the rich history of these dances and the music that inspired them, practicing in any suitable (and unsuitable) space, performing, competing, DJing and teaching.

Since 2015, Olga's been one of the regular Lindy Hop, Solo Jazz and Blues Dance teachers in the fair city of Dublin. Among her competitive achievements is the 1st place in the Feelin’ Blues 2016 Rising Teacher Contest in Tel Aviv, where the winners were selected by student vote.

Nico

Medical Scientist by day and dance fanatic by night! Born in the small town of Kluczbork (Poland), where she lived up to the age of 14, when her family decided to move to Ireland. As a child Nico danced hip-hop and modern but her crush on Lindy Hop didn’t start until much later. It was in the Rebel City of Cork that she encountered a troupe of dancers swinging at a prohibition party. She was so enchanted by it all, that she had to give it a try!

Nico has joined Dublin crew in 2015 and her small crush on Lindy had soon developed into one true love! Since then she has been dancing Lindy in Dublin and abroad trying to soak up all the knowledge from local and international Swing Legends.

Nico's newest discovery is Collegiate Shag, so when the music gets fast, you will probably find her scooting across the dance floor!

For Nico, dancing is all about the pure joy of Swing music and that magical feeling of connection you get, while stomping with another person.

Gabriel

Born and raised in a small town in the south of Spain, Gabriel moved to Dublin at the beginning of 2016. Shortly after moving to the green island, Gabriel discovered Swing dancing and has been growing up as a dancer ever since.

During this time, he has tried all kinds of styles, but his favorites are definitely sweet Lindy Hop, frantic Collegiate Shag and soulful Blues.

Gabriel has travelled all around Europe and Ireland attending workshops and learning Lindy Hop, Charleston, Solo Jazz, Collegiate Shag and Blues from some of the best dancers in the world.

His style is growing goofy and musical, and Gabriel believes in the connection with the music and his partner. After experiencing some performances and competitions, Gabriel is looking forward to learning and enjoying dancing much more in the future.
