We want to keep it short. So if you decide to take the Mini Workshop, you will get two lessons of 2 hours each (w/ short break) and we promise you some fun lessons with new & easy things you can try on the dancefloor immediately.
In 2019 we have some well know teachers and successful newcomers for you:
Learn again from our beloved Valencian Teacher couple:
Javi & Lucía
Lucía and Javi have been dancing and teaching Lindy Hop and Balboa together since 2012, abroad and mostly across their motherland Spain.
Proud owners and directors of both Black Bottom schools in Valencia, with more than 500 students, they also organize Valencia Balboa Festival.
Their fine technique, musicality and style made them win competitions in international festivals, such as European Balboa Anniversary (Strictly 2017), Rome Balboa Weekend (both in Strictly and Mix &Match 2018 (best leader, best follower), Ballove in Prague (Best leader, second best follow).
In classes, they love to focus on partnership and creating an harmonious flow while dancing in couple playing and reacting with each other.
Be ready for challenging and fun classes with them!

Amy Lu & Alexander Lieu:
Amy Lu and Alexander Lieu are energetic swing dancers currently based out of Geneva, Switzerland where they teach weekly balboa classes for Geneva Swing. From the USA, they both discovered their love for Lindy Hop and Balboa at the Century Ballroom in Seattle in 2006, where they met, establishing a lifelong partnership on and off the dance floor.
Amy and Alex believe in bringing joy, humor, and energy to the each dance. They both value solid partnerships with dancers of all levels, and making every moment important for each partner. They strongly believe the dance to be a full body experience from head to toe, physically and mentally. Combining Alex’s obsession for energetic natural movement and Amy’s pedagogical backgrounds in education and yoga, they teach organized and clear classes fused with fun ideas, playful shapes, and detailed movement mechanics for diverse bodies.
