Elle & Martí

Marti started dancing and teaching in his home city of Barcelona where he discovered the fantastic world of swing dance and jazz music. Having studied a range of different styles of dance, he loves to mix it up often within one song, letting the music drive his dynamic movement. He has competed in both Collegiate Shag and Lindy Hop and recently has placed in various competitions around Europe. In class he has a strong focus on technique and giving the right tools to his students in order to improve the best that they can. On the social dance floor he uses these tools to interact with his partners, become another instrument in the song and, of course, have a lot of fun.

As a child, Elle was already dancing to anything she could get her hands on from Modern Jazz to Ukrainian Folk Dance. When she discovered Lindy Hop and swing music in her hometown of Adelaide, Australia, there was no turning back and her classes truly display her passion and joy for the dance. With her own particular style and energy, she is always looking for new shapes and rhythms to inspire and communicate with her partner. Elle encourages creativity and the freedom of expression within the dance and believes that Lindy Hop is a conversation between two people and the music.
