Workshops & Teachers
Natasha & Nejc
Natasha is Russian and has been dancing since she was seven. In 2001 she discovered swing dancing and fell in love with it. She joined innumerable swing dance workshops in Russia and other countries, and soon became one of the best Russian dancers and teachers. She is now living in France, working with Olivier and running the school Rockswing06. Natasha likes competing for fun but enjoys especially the social dancing by sharing her passion with others. With a very personal style, she teaches all kinds of swing dances: Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie, Balboa and West Coast Swing. She is involved in the organization team of some of the biggest international dance camp (Balboa on the promenade, Boogie Swing in Toulouse, Montpellier Swing Dance Festival, St Petersburg Swing Festival).
Nejc is one of the founders of the new swing age era in Slovenia and started swing dancing back in 2004. He is one of the main culprits in popularizing lindy hop in Slovenia in the early 2000s. His swing dance experience is a collection of many international workshops. He uses experience from modern movement theatre music and classical theatre to bring a fresh and fun approach to teaching and developing swing dance. He pays special attention to jazz moves and musicality, both essential to swing dancing. He has been teaching Lindy hop, Balboa, Charleston and Blues on international circuit since 2008.
