Felix is a swing dance instructor, performer, choreographer based in Stockholm, Sweden. Like any other swedish dancer he started in the swedish competition scene. He started at the age of nine and with bugg as his main style. One year later he took his first basic six count step in Boogie Woogie and has since then never stopped.
At the age of 16 he made his first visit to Herräng Dance Camp in Sweden and fell in love with the African American social dances of the swing era such as Lindy hop, Vernacular Jazz, Charleston and Tap. He has since then tried to inspire and learn everything that he can and develop his skill of dancing, music and teaching. He wants to pass on this knowledge to people all over the world. He is a strong believer of the freedom and the authentic style of the dance and the connection you create with your partner and the music.
He sees swing dancing as a way to bring people together and bring happiness in to their life. Because when he dances that’s is all he can think about and express. Pure happiness!
Egle Regelskis is one of the leading Lindy Hop teachers in Vilnius, Lithuania. Since opening Hoppers’ dance studio in Vilnius Egle is one of those who making the Lithuanian swing dance scene thrive. Besides teaching she and her dance partner are running Hoppers’ dance studio and swing dance events with the goal of helping new Lithuanian swing dance talents emerge.
Dancing was always in her blood. First tried Ballroom and Folk dances. As soon as she found Swing dances, that was what she was looking for. As soon as she hears a good song, no matter it is swing, salsa, funk, hip-hop or house, Egle starts dancing, cause she just loves good music.
Egle believes that dancing is something that makes people get out of their fears and meet themselves better. The way we are is the way we dance and magic happens only stepping out of our comfort zone by accepting ourselves with all the weaknesses and strengths. If one can walk one can dance. Everything else depends on passion and willingness to work.
