TEACHERS

FelixBerghällBasel.png

FELIX BERGHÄLL

Felix is a Swedish African American Vernacular and Lindy Hop dancer, performer, choreographer and educator as well as a DJ and music researcher.

Since the first competition in 2001 to stepping on the stage of the famous APOLLO Theater (Harlem, NY) in 2014, Felix's favorite place to be is on stage. There’s no place else that he’ll rather be, that’s where he feels the best. He performs almost every weekend traveling to events across the world and he’s been part of everything from small productions to one hour full length theater shows.

TADAS VASILIAUSKAS

Tadas is Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz dancer based in Vilnius, Lithuania. Tadas has been dancing, competing, actively performing and choreographing for over 10 years. He is most proud of leading a performance troupe, bringing Lindy Hop on the theatre stage and founding Harlem Speaks Easy jazz club.
 
These days he is teaching online and sharing passion for dance on social media. Tadas can be frequently found playing jazz trombone too. On the dance floor, you can recognize him for his playful dance style and great energy. Tadas loves faster, groovy, energetic swing music.

PamelaBasel.png

PAMELA GAIZUTYTE

Humorous and dynamic, keen, full of heart and a touch of the anarchic, Pamela was spellbound by Lindy Hop energy and community at the age of sixteen when she started her first classes at Lindyhop.lt Club in Vilnius. Despite her young age Pamela has already brought herself to light constantly learning anything related to dancing, be it music, psychology or anatomy.

As a dancer Pamela cherishes individuality and freedom. For her Lindy Hop is not as much about impeccable technique as it is about musicality and awareness. As a teacher she shares her values and encourages people to find their own way of dancing: “Learn to be ok with the way you are and how your body moves. It’s all about you.”

CARLOS MACHAVA

Carlos is a professional dancer from Mozambique and worked for the national ballet of Mozambique, the Companhia Nacional de Dança e Canto and Hodi Maputo Afro-Swing company. Currently he teaches traditional dances from Mozambique and afro-swing all over Europe.
The traditional dances are very rhythmic and powerful and were also used as a cultural form of resistance against Portuguese colonialism.
When Carlos discovered the swing dances he was immediately intrigued of this Afro-American dance form which carries African and European routes to express all the richness of jazz music. He loves to dig into and focus on the roots of jazz dancing which he also discovers in traditional dances from Mozambique.
In his view dance is the expression of the music with its rhythm translated into movement. On stage and in his classes Carlos shares his profound knowledge of  the divers facets of jazz dancing with passion and full of energy.
