Cat and Cam
Cat and Cam are a team who love sharing the history, creativity and fun of lindy hop with students all over the world.
Get ready to laugh your pants off whilst swingin’ the frig out! With 25 years combined teaching experience between them 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. Most of all, they love making bad jokes. Also Jungle Speed (the greatest game ever). They love that too.
Cat and Cam recently won the Fast and Furious division at London Swing Festival, took first place in the Strictly Lindy at Chase Festival in Heidelberg, Germany, and made the finals in the Classic Showcase at the International Lindy Hop Championships in Washington, DC..
Kuno and Solveig
Sólveig started dancing at the age of 8 and it has been her favourite way of expressing herself ever since. Through the years, she tried several different dance styles (including ballet, classical jazz, belly dance, contemporary dance and street dance) before she finally found her passion for swing dancing in 2010. She immediately got addicted to the awesome music and the contagious joy of the dance. Sólveig has taught lindy hop in Copenhagen for several years, as well as solo charleston and authentic jazz, but recently moved back to her home sweet home in Iceland. She just looooves all aspects of the dance, whether it’s performing, practicing, teaching or social dancing. The more the better!
Kuno has a solid background in music – playing various instruments and singing since he was young. This understanding of music has been a great advantage for Kuno when he began to explore Lindy Hop back in 2009. He quickly fell in love with the dance, especially with the playfulness and musicality of Lindy Hop. Kuno has participated in numerous international competitions in Lindy Hop with top rankings. He has also for many years been deeply involved in developing the Danish swing dance scene. He is one of Denmark's best swing dancers and takes a pride in sharing the joy of the dance through teaching. With his musical understanding, Kuno is always playing with rhythmical improvisations in his dance, something he loves to share with his students in class. Kuno has also studied didactics at Copenhagen University, a skill set he puts to good use when planning his classes.
Yana and Guy
Beginning to dance only a couple of months apart, Yana and Guy met on the dance floor and immediately began enjoying each other's foolishness that could only be acceptably achieved in swing dancing. One of their hobbies at the beginning was practising pancakes while waiting for other sorts of food to be ready for takeout. Now they teach together at the Holy Lindy Land dance school in various cities in Israel and in cities around Europe, while keeping the initial mischief spirit alive.
Yana discovered swing dance about 9 years ago after getting a swing dance class as a birthday present. Since then it became not only a hobby but a passion and a way of life. Yana works at Holy Lindy, the main swing dance school in Israel almost since its opening, now developing a lot of its syllabus. She loves pizza, aerials and cats, and hates long walks on the beach. One of her favourite moments in the past years is getting to the Open Showcase Finals in ESDC 2015.
Swing dancing started out as a joke for Guy. He was tricked by a friend into gong to a class, even though he had never tried anything like it before. But the joke was on his friend, as Guy loved Lindy Hop from the first Rock Step. Since then he danced as much as he could, learning, travelling and evolving. Guy is a teacher at Holy Lindy Land swing dancing school in Israel, teaching and MC all around Europe as well. Guy teaches with enthusiasm, passion and lots of metaphors. He is able to see the student's perspective and uses that in his class. In Guy's class, you will always leave with a smile and lots of new knowledge. You won't believe how you've learned so much after hours of fun and laughs.
