☆ Larissa & Heiko (CH) ☆

Larissa and Heiko have been dancing together for more than a decade and teach as a couple since many years. They love to spread their joy and passion for swing dancing in weekly classes and workshops in their local dance school “Basel Jitterbugs” in Switzerland and abroad. Larissa and Heiko dance all of the swing dance styles and mix them based on the tempo and energy of the music. In class they aim to deliver a good learning experience with a well balanced mixture of fun and challenges. Their goal is to help you grow as a swing dancer and develop your own voice on the dance floor. You might have seen them in the teachers line up of many festivals like Rock that Swing, the Barcelona Shag Festival or Swing Paradise or in competitions where they made finals and placed successfully.

☆ Catarina (PT/DE) & Martin (DE) ☆

Cat and Martin met in 2017 in Berlin and since then they never stopped dancing Collegiate Shag! They both have the same energy that matches with the up-lifting energy of this dance. Happy birds deserve to fly and that’s what they feel when they dance with each other. They are hungry for pure joy and love to teach shag as much as they can. On the dancefloor they have great chemistry and they are known for being focus and extremely fast dancers. Catarina is building the Shag Berlin Scene with all her heart since 2016 and Martin a devoted Shag Soldier. They both performed with Shag Troupe Berlin, in the most beautiful stages of Berlin and some known festivals around Europe, like Warsaw Shag Festival, Mind the Shag or Barcelona Shag Festival! Martin is natural from Germany and Catarina from Portugal! You will be caught by their efficiency and pleasant classes, so get ready for a high level of contagious shag happiness, because they will make you fly!
