TEACHERS

Àlex and Núria

 

A highly energetic and fluent pair of dancers from Barcelona. Their approach to Lindy Hop moves away from steps and focuses on expressivity and connection. They get their inspiration from dancers who combine tradition and modernity without losing the energetic spirit of Lindy Hop and are currently part of the dance troupe accompanying the Barcelona Jazz Orchestra.

Pep and Emi

 

They started dancing Lindy Hop in 1999. They trained as dancers in Barcelona and in several workshops in Europe. For more than 7 years, they taught at the Balliball school and participated in the organisation of the Barswingona Festival.

Cofounders of the Barcelona Jazz Cats performance troupe, where they danced and choreographed from its beginnings until its breakup. During the troupe’s 5 years of life, they performed on important stages such as l’Auditori and the Palau de la Música of Barcelona or the Jazz Festival in Cap Roig, Gerona. They shared the stage with great musicians and dancers such as La Locomotora Negra, Swing Set, La Vella Dixieland, Barcelona Jazz Orquestra, Ignasi Terraza, Guillem Alonso (Tap), Laia Molins (Tap), Roser Font (Tap), among others.

They have been giving lessons on the European scene since 2003.

In 2007, they started their own school “Escola de Swing Pep & Emi” with their own team and evolved artistically and pedagogically until 2012.

They have created their own Lindy Hop performance troupe known as Swing Beats.

From 2008 to 2012, they organised their own Lindy Hop festival “Sinera Swing Festival” at Arenys de Mar (Barcelona).

They currently teach regular courses, week-end workshops and give performances at both national and international levels.
In their classes, they foster the connection of dancers with the music and their dance partners, with a sole purpose: Having such fun as dancers used to do at the Savoy Ballroom!
