We are very excited to welcome a bunch of wonderful teachers.
Annette & eran
Eran (ISR) and Annette (DE) met each other years ago on the dancefloor and – after rounds and rounds of fantastic dances – they realised they had a very similar idea of smooth connection, clear body movement and original musicality, all with a generous helping of dance humor. As teachers they want to share their vision of great social dancing with you. No one knows what they’ll cook up but it’ll sure have a bit of everything: Rhythms and moves, shapes and style, class & sass, grounded individual and beautifully partnered movement.
Jenna & Nejc
Jenna Applegarth (USA)
Jenna found swing dancing in 2004 in her small local scene of Wenatchee WA. Since then she has spent countless hours expanding her dancing repertoire and sharing her love and knowledge of these dances with others. Her energy and passion create the perfect environment for learning.
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, and rooted in the music and history. With over 15 years of teaching/coaching/training experience, she loves finding new ways to connect with other dancers on the floor and in the classroom and to create challenging yet applicable lessons in the classroom.
Nejc Zupan (SLO)
Nejc started swing dancing back in 2003 with contemporary dance experience and a strong love for jazz music. Because of this he became one of the main culprits for the popularization of Lindy Hop and Balboa in Slovenia in the early 2000s. His dance experience is a collection of endless research into different dance forms, many international workshops and his humble willingness to keep learning from anybody who is willing to teach him. As a teacher and dancer he pays special attention to movement and musicality, both quintessential to any form of Swing and Blues dancing. He is always searching for new ways of spreading these joyful dance forms.
