For many years, Solen and Laurent have been passionate about swing dancing, but their preference goes to the Balboa. Partners since 2015 they travel the French and European scene as well to dance as to teach balboa. What attracts them the most in dance? Sharing, social dancing and the pleasure of teaching and transmitting their passion.

A Balboa dancer himself , Rodrigo has embraced the chalenge of Djinng for the Balboa and Blues parties and workshops in Lisbon.
Carla and Rodrigo started teaching together in 2020, they love teaching and spreading the love of Blues and Swing dance and music and seeing the students interact with each other and with music.
Together they teach Blues, Balboa, SlowBal and Lindy Hop classes, always with good energy and complicity! Privileging well-being and socializing, in an inclusive and fun environment to learn to dance. As they say in class: “dancing is good for your health, it makes the body move and uplifts the soul”.
Stomping at Six
Stomping at six is a Swing Jazz Blues band from Lisbon, six talented musicians with a background in jazz who fell in love when they saw lindy hoppers dancing in the street.
Its repertoire is directed towards Swing and Blues dances, songs from the 20's and 30's, from the fastest swings to the slowest and most intense blues. Owners of an energy and an empathy from which it is impossible to escape or be quiet they are most happy when they play for dancers!!!
Pedro is one of the Lisbon Balboa dancers that from the beginning has embraced the chalenge of Djinng for the Balboa crowd.
