The Team


Deirdre & Joost 

Teaching Intermediate, Advanced and Flashy moves

Deirde & Joost Slow Balboa em Lisboa May 2024.jpg

When Deirdre discovered Lindy Hop, many years ago in Berlin, she became a true addict. Soon, Lindy Hop wasn’t enough, so Balboa joined the Swing Book.

In 2015, she discovered Slow Bal and since then she has been hooked on this beautiful and elegant Swing dance. With everything she learned, she opened Slowfeet Studio, her own dance school in 2019. 

If you don’t see Deirdre dancing, she is probably talking about dance.

Joost fell in love with all the technical aspects of the dance, the creativity, the expression and connection. He tried to attend international workshops as much as possible to learn from the best. At parties he was often the last man standing.

After Lindy Hop, Balboa was quickly added to his Swing repertoire. Later,  he was inspired to dance to slow jazz music and Slow Bal was perfect for that!


When Joost is teaching, he hopes to inspire everyone to find their own voice in the dance

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!

Tiago Paiva - Guitar
Jorge Figueiredo - Double Bass
Pedro Rodrigues - Drums
