We are a community of swing enthusiasts who are jointly involved in the expansion of swing in Ostrava.
Bez vášně a zápalu našeho týmu by to zkrátka nešlo! Děkujeme za pomoc s organizací kurzů, lekcí, tančíren i vystoupení.
Stell the HepCat – a creative wild cat for which there is a swing with the whole soul, body and space. He builds on tradition, but freely breaks down all boundaries and creates his own style. In one person she is a dancer, teacher, performer, designer of dance clothes, seamstress, selector of traditional swing music and electro swing DJ-ane. Maybe she danced before she learned to walk. She went through modern, basics of Latin, Slovak folk dance and long years of ballet drill. However, years ago, the swing and pre-swing era caught her by the heart. After successfully participating in international competitions in Boogie Woogie, they founded their own dance school B-Swing in Bratislava. Lindy Hop and Solo Charleston / Jazz steps taught here for several years. She brings the young generation to dance with her crazy workshops in Charleston on the Czech-Slovak string Electroswing Fever. You could experience it several times on the stage of the summer festivals Pohoda, Colors of Ostrava and Beats for Love. Her specialty is musicality and connecting the world of music and dance.
Peta is our youngest member of the team. She doesn’t dance for long, but she basically still dances. And when he’s not dancing, he at least sings. The swing simply failed. In college, of course, as the name suggests, Collegiate Shag prefers. Still, he likes Lindy Hop and has been flirting with Boogie Woogie lately. His not-so-secret love is jazz, in various forms from modal jazz to hard-bop to gypsy-swing. If the dancers play so old that no one remembers them anymore or it sounds like French, chances are he is playing today.
Monca is our passionate reinforcement of the team. It always runs at 150%. She takes care of the graphics and design and is really very handy! She was led to swing by her love of old movies and overall she is a lover of the swing era. One day she would like to dance like Ginger and we believe that with her will she will succeed! Of the swing dances, the closest to her are collegiate shag, charleston and boogie woogie, she definitely doesn’t save energy. It follows the motto: “No time, waste time!” As with the other people on the team, swing has become her lifestyle.
