    Both of them have started on their dance journey since 2009, Maria in her home town -Yaroslavl and Daniil in Moscow. Starting with Boogie Woogie, later in 2013 they focused on Lindy Hop, which turned out to be much more fitting for them. Nowadays Daniil and Maria are well known in swing dance society, teaching and performing all around Europe. For their style they have a plenty of inspiration from all different old and modern choreography philosophies.

  • Workshops 课程

    2 Levels this year: Beginner/Intermediate, and Intermediate/Advanced
    Auditions will be on Saturday before the lessons to determine the level you will be on.

     

    This year we are introducing a fresh new class material: Mini Private.

    It's like a regular private lesson but with a twist, to let everyone experience what a private lesson is like and at the same time let everyone learn about some of the common questions and problems we all face in our dancing. Each selected couple has 5 minutes in the spotlight with one pair of instructors while everyone else can observe on the side.

     

    Included in Full Pass, no extra charge. Open to all levels but limited spot of 10 couples per instructor pairs, tickets are giving out on a first come first served basis to who arrive early at the lessons on Sunday (One per couple, so you do need a partner before the mini-private).

     

    (We encourage everyone who don't get a ticket to still observe the class as it will still be a very worthwhile learning experience. To keep things going quick and smoothly, we do need everyone who's not in the spotlight to keep quiet through out the class and save any questions or discussion to after class.)
