Palm Swings is very proud to have a stellar teacher lineup for 2017!
Mr Benjamin Cook has placed in over 30 different competitions around the world, is a 2-time UK Lindy Hop Champion and also won the Advanced Strictly Lindy at ILHC in 2013. Proud to have come from a background without professional dance training, he’s an awesome dancer, teacher, choreographer and we’re so happy to have him teaching on the South Coast in 2017!
Robyn teaches in four locations across London with Swing Patrol, as well as several troupes (too many to list ere, and certainly not enough space to list which competitions they’ve won, i.e. all of them). Robyn has taught globally, but this is her first foray to the South West and she can’t wait to come to Sunny Torquay… (we’ve already told her to put the cream on the scone first).
Cat and Cam are a team who love sharing the history, creativity and fun of lindy hop with students all over the world. With 25 years of combined teaching experience between them and a similarly ridiculous sense of humour, Cat and Cam are dedicated to helping their students improve and to working to a high standard, whilst not taking themselves too seriously.
David moved to Bristol in the summer of 2009 and set up Swing Dance Bristol to develop the swing dance scene in the city. Before his overnight conversion to swing many years ago, he had a background in contemporary dance which taught him how to use and be in control of the dancer’s weight and centre, and was a perfect preparation for partner dancing.
Lana has many years of teaching and performing experience behind her, and always has an eye on follower technique. The chemistry she bring to classes with David is a match made in dance heaven, and you’re sure to learn a lot from this dynamic duo.
