This workshop is for swing dancers who learn at an intermediate or advanced level. You’ve probably been swing dancing for a couple of years, are very comfortable with the basics of lindy hop and with social dancing at a variety of speeds. You’re ready to further your technical skills and progress to the next level, improving your technique and quality of movement.
Ramona Staffeld is one of the highest profile Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz dance teachers in the world, performing and teaching at all major events, including Herrang (Sweden), Swing Out New Hampshire (USA), Swingtime Ball (Beijing), Paris Jazz Roots (France), Sugarloaf Stomp (Brazil), to name a few.
She is known for her wildly graceful style and playful spirit on the dance floor. She is a champion dancer, holding first place titles from the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown, American Lindy Hop Championships, The International Lindy Hop Championships, and the World Lindy Hop Championships. Ramona is at the forefront of Lindy Hop, telling her story, while preserving and passing on the legacy of the dance to the next generation.
Ramona was 14 when spotted by one of the founding fathers of Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning. Still in her early teens, Manning asked Ramona to open with him at the Midsummer Night Swing series at Lincoln Center in New York City. What Ramona values and prioritizes in class, on the social dance floor, on stage, and in life, came very much from working with and being around Frankie. Ramona began studying swing dancing at the age of 11. She has been dancing Lindy Hop, Charleston, and jazz era social dances for the past 21 years.
Remy Kouakou Kouame is an established competitor, performer and teacher, known for his unique and playful performing and teaching style. He travels to many international camps and festivals, sharing his passion and knowledge. What he likes to share the most is the joy that dancing provides. For him, dancing is… to live… to express!
