Sondre Olsen-Bye and Tanya Georgiievska
Travelling professional dance instructors, performers and competitors.
Tanya and Sondre started their partnership at Swing Aout Festival 2015 (Laroquebrou, France) and right after that they got invited to teach in Canada. Since then it rolled like a snowball with more and more invitations to teach and perform Boogie-Woogie and Lindy-hop in different events around Europe. Apart from that they got involved into the international Boogie-Woogie competition scene representing Norway. During 2016-2017 they have entered all finals in each competition. Their fast development made them win four World Cups, Nordic Championship and, most important, World Championship 2017 (Marseille, France). Currently they are active World Boogie-Woogie champions. Their plan is to keep on competing, performing, teaching and sharing the dances they love in any possible way!
They also organize one of the Europe's biggest pure Boogie-Woogie festival, Boogie Feet's Festival, together with their danceclub Lesja Dovre Danseteam.
Florent Llamas and Roxane Veron
Florent and Roxane are traveling the globe to perform, teach and compete internationally in Boogie Woogie, Lindy Hop and Authentic jazz.
Together they regularly participate in international Boogie-Woogie competitions and achieve high results. Now they occupy the fifth line of the world ranking list in WRRC. And also they are number three in France in Main Class and they are a part of the French team.
Dancing is a very important part of their lives and they happily spread their knowledge and love for Swing dancing.
Sergey Kovalov and Sofya Kapustina (Kuva and Sonya)
The couple without which none of our October Boogie Fest can be - wonderful, lovely, crazy and inspiring - Sergey Kovalev and Sofya Kapustina (Kuva and Sonya)!
They are wonderful dancers and great teachers. Their peculiar style, both in Boogie-Woogie and in Collegiate Shag, allows them to be noticeable among the dancers. And classes are always interesting, fun and very informative, because they find an approach to each student.
