About the teachers

Verdiana Tedeschi

Verdiana Tedeschi

Verdiana Tedeschi

It all started with a fifties Fiat 500, since then she lives a life of vintage passion: from clothing to hairstyling, furniture and music. So it wasn’t long until Verdiana discovered the Lindy drug during her work as a vintage hairdresser for Radio Modern. Once she got the bounce in her bones, her life changed completely. You can regularly see her popping up at social dances in Belgium and attending international dance camps and workshops, catching the eyes of the innocent bystanders with her Italian style lindy moves. When it comes to swing dancing, for Verdiana it’s all about having fun and moving your body to the music. Musicality is the key for two individuals to become one on the dance floor.
