Maté Csike (Hungary)

He learned the basics of boogie woogie in 2012 in his home country Hungary, then he met Lindy Hop two years later which he became very fond of and passionate about. Since 2015 he teaches locally in Budapest, attends workshops, festivals, and all sorts of dance events all around Europe. He considers knowing both roles a very important aspect of Lindy Hop so he dances both as a follower and as a leader. In his dance, he prefers smoothness, rhythm variations, sharp angles, alongside with elegance and light hand gestures. He’s deeply motivated by old timers, for example, Jewel McGowan and Dean Collins. He likes to play around with facial expressions, and one of his specialties are swivels.
