And now let us introduce…
Cat and Cam
Cam (AUZ) and Cat (UK) are a team who love sharing the history, creativity, and fun of lindy hop with students all over the world.
Get ready to laugh your pants off whilst swingin’ the frig out! With 25 years combined teaching experience between them and a similarly ridiculous sense of humour, Cam and Cat are dedicated to helping their students improve and to working to a high standard, whilst not taking themselves too seriously. After teaching for the first time together in 2014, they have not looked back!
They love social dancing. They love throwing the hell down Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers style at 300bpm. They love teaching, helping people discover new talents and achieve their perceived impossibles. Most of all, they love making bad jokes. Also Jungle Speed (the greatest game ever). They love that too.
Barbora “Bára” Hřebačková (CZ), an early dancer herself, she Hip Hopped her way into Tap, Charleston, Authentic Jazz & the Lindy Hop, growing more and more in all these styles of swing dancing in the city of Prague, Czech Republic. Currently, she is living and working in Europe’s much alive jazz-city, Ghent, Belgium: performing with dance project, Steam Heat Cats, and teaching at Crazy Legs Dance school. Do find her anywhere around Europe dancing & teaching, and enjoy her all-the-way graceful, light way of moving to the beat!

This track is for those that have been dancing for more than 12 months. This group will be split into two groups on Saturday morning.
