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 2016-2018 they have entered all finals in each competition. Their fast development made them win 8 World Cups, 2 Nordic Championships, 2 Norwegian Championships and, most important, European Championship 2018 (Schaffhausen, Swiss) and World Championship 2017 (Marseille, France). Currently, they are one of the most demanded and invited couples at international events (camps, festivals). 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.
