Cat (UK) & Cam (AUS)

 

Cat and Cam are teachers who love sharing the history, creativity and joy of Lindy Hop with their students all over the world.

With 25 years of combined teaching experience and a similarly ridiculous sense of humour, Cat and Cam are dedicated to helping their students improve and to working to a high standard, whilst not taking themselves too seriously. After teaching for the first time together in 2014, they have not looked back!

They love social dancing. They love throwing the hell down Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers style at 300bpm. They love teaching, helping people discover new talents and achieve their perceived impossibles.

As teachers and competitors at international festivals they made a name for themselves.

Michael (US)

Michael has been dancing for over 20 years and has travelled the globe with his dance partner Evita Acre. In class, he emphasizes creativity and focuses on strengthening the connection between dance partners.

For 6 years, Michael was one of the directors of the Syncopated City Dance Company, the first professional dance company with a focus on drama dance in NYC. He also danced in the Lindy track of the Broadway musical "Swing!", which was originally developed and performed by his mentors Ryan Francois and Jenny Thomas.

He was strongly influenced and inspired by his mentors Ryan and Jenny, but also by other famous dancers such as Fred Astaire, David Dalmo, Tommy Rall, Nathan Bugh and of course by his longtime dance partner Evita.
