TEACHER LINE UP

Felipe grew up in an environment where music, dance, and rhythms are a part of everyday life.

Spending most of his youth in music studios, theatre productions and performing absurd theatre sketches in a local theatre in his hometown in Brazil, Felipe only encountered Swing Dancing when he moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to study film making.

Feeling drawn to Jazz Music and the beauty of the social dance culture, Felipe's pursuit in the Jazz Dances took him to the biggest dance camps and competitions around the world. There he would learn more about the origins and history of this culture that had captivated him.

In the next few years, Felipe would establish himself as an avid performer and instructor, sharing his passion and love for Jazz history, music and dance.

Stephanie O'Connor is an outstanding dancer and teacher for Lind Hop and Solo Jazz. She performed and placed in international competitions, one of which you can watch below.






Charlotte discovered dance as a child, beginning with ballet and then moving onto ballroom, modern and hiphop dancing. Stopping during her university years, Charlotte rekindled her love for dance in the summer of 2016. Her passion now is Lindy Hop, Charleston, Solo jazz, Shag and Balboa. She loves to teach and to learn locally in Berlin, and to pass on the joy and the history of swing dance through her fiery energy.





Karim came across Swing dancing in 2013 by chance and immediately fell in love. He started attending classes and parties in Berlin almost every night and attended over 30 festivals in different countries where he also performed and placed in various competitions. He was teaching regularly at Swingspiration, one of Berlin’s main swing dance schools and now moved back to his home country, Egypt, where he also contributes to growing the swing dance scene.

Watch the video below, to see Karim Taha place with Victoria at Goat Swing Exchange 2018.
