Jenna first started dancing when she was still in diapers. She began swing dancing some many years later, luckily no longer in diapers. Jenna continues to expand her dancing repertoire and share her love and knowledge of these dances with others. Although she enjoys pretty much any type of dancing and music you can move to, her first love is Lindy Hop. Her energy and passion create the perfect environment for learning, creating challenging yet applicable lessons.
Jenna has attended, coordinated, and taught various workshops and exchanges all across the globe. Some of her favorite highlights are performing at Benaroya Hall in The Jump Session Show and teaching for Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing. Above all else she believes that learning to dance should be fun. With over 10 years of teaching/coaching experience, she loves finding new ways to connect with other dancers on the floor and in the classroom.
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 dancing or competing. The year of 2009 and the first visit to Herräng was a big turning point in his life. The dance and the music had so much more to offer. That visit turned out to be the best thing he could do, his way of training for both competitions and his own dancing really changed and it proved to be good and have resulted in his most successful years in his career.
Felix’s teaching and dancing is focused on getting every dancer to get to know them selves. As a strong believer of the word “Individuality” he believes that by practicing your own movement you can achieve great things and connect with someone and express pure happiness.
Elze Visnevskyte comes from Vilnius, Lithuania. She has been dancing a variety of dances since she was a 6 - from old renaissance to traditional folk dances, until she discovered Lindy Hop or maybe it was Lindy Hop that found her.
Later on she spent many hours discovering the world of solo jazz.
Elze spent a lot of time acting in theatre, so she takes a part of theatre to her dancing and improvisation. She values creativity, authentic way of dancing, musicality and playfulness and spreads it to her students.
