An early dancer herself, she Hip Hopped her way into Tap, Charleston, Authentic Jazz & the Lindy Hop, growing more and more in all these styles of swing dancing in the city of Prague, Czech Republic.

Earanee Niedzwiecki (Solo)

A lover of Satchmo (Louis Armstrong) and Nat King Cole since childhood, it was the swingin’ tunes that drew Earanee to her first Lindy Hop class in her hometown of Adelaide, Australia. Bitten by the jitterbug, Earanee soon began following her love of swing dance around the globe, and has since taught and competed across Australia, Europe and the US.

Anton Potocnik (Shag)

Since  early  days  Anton  (originally from Slovenija) was  interested  in  the  art  of  body  movement.  Once  he  discovered  dancing  a  combination  of  movement,  music  and  interaction  with  a  partner  offered  him  the  ultimate  challenge.  After  many  years  of  dancing  salsa,  Anton  moved  to  Zurich  where  he  met  swing  dancers.  He  immediately  fell  in  love  with  Lindy  hop,  realizing  for  the  first  time  how  much  fun  dancing  can  be.  His  latest  obsession  is  Collegiate  Shag  where  no  song  is  fast  enough  for  him.  Fast  kicks,  mindless  thinking  and  energetic  music  is  what  keeps  him  on  a  dancing  floor  until  the  very  last  song.  Anton  draws  his  inspiration  from  Steven  and  Chanzie  and  a  number  of  other  incredible  international  teachers.

Lies Vogeler (Shag)

Lies Vogeler (Shag)

With a love for social dancing and a passion for self-development to become a better dancer Lies hopes to inspire people to learn and enjoy everyday dancing as much as she does. No matter if it is Lindy, Balboa, or Collegiate Shag you will always find her with a big smile on a social floor moving in old and new rhythms of swing music. This energy is what made her want to teach and share the excitement in the first place. The social aspect in Lindy Hop is very important to her as she feels privileged to have met so many great and talented people at various events at home and abroad.

Sander Costermans (Solo Jazz Tuesday in Molenbeek)

Ever since Sander was a teenager, he was very interested in jazz and the style from the swing era. He started dancing because he just couldn’t sit still when listening to music. He’s part of the Jazz Maniacs and the Old Soulz performance crews in Brussels, which have given him the opportunity to perform at events in the country and abroad. The authentic style is what he tries to recreate, but he likes to put in his own character as well. His goal in teaching people lindy hop, is to enable them to dance comfortably with anyone they happen to meet, and enjoy themselves when they go out dancing.
