➽ Lindy Hop 2 Levels-Workshops
➽ Blues 2 Levels-Workshops
➽ 3 social dance nights
➽ DJ Sarah Will (Munich)


Oksana (Ukraine) and Joris (Belgium) are two international dancers and dance instructors who decided to move and live in Germany where they pursue their dream of dancing and teaching dance. Each of them has a vast dancing and teaching experience since late 2000.
They both taught in different countries, local communities and international festivals and are united by their love of Swing dances! 

They are inspired by jazz music, the history of jazz, and the history and evolution of the various swing and blues dances. Learning to play Jazz – Oksana on xylophone and Joris on clarinet and trombone – has developed their understanding of Jazz as movement.

Oksana started her way to Swing Dance from various other styles, like ballroom, modern jazz, contamporary, while Joris has a background in physical theater (The Commedia School, Copenhagen, 2007) before their roads evolved towards dancing and more specifically African-American Jazz dances. Each of them has vastly promoted the development of Swing dance scenes in their homelands. For many years Oksana was one of the main teachers and events organizers in Kyiv Swing Dance School and Joris is known as the founder of Crazy Legs Dance School in Ghent, the city where he honed his dancing and teaching skills.

They love to dance to various styles, tempos and create fun and creative figures and would be happy to share their knowledge with you!
