Petra and Janez

Petra Robek & Janez Šepetavc (SLO)

Fast cat paws! Petra & Janez are gonna take care of that…

Petra started dancing swing in 2007 in Ljubljana. Soon she started going to international camps to further her knowledge about the dance and so she started teaching locally in 2009. She also has international experience, as she taught in Belgium, Hungary and Croatia. She has won and placed at several Jack and Jill competitions at different international swing events.

Janez met swing in 2008 and since the first moment it has become his passion. He started teaching at Studio Dansa, where he still teaches today. He is a social dancer by nature and his favourite award is the Social Dancer Award at Ljubljana Sweet Swing Festival. Petra and Janez became dance partners in 2014.

They are teaching weekly lindy hop classes in Slovenia and at international swing events. Together they won the strictly lindy competition at Sofia Swing Dance Festival 2016. They are also part of Retronom swing group. They are high energy dancers that like fast songs and social dancing.

Ada and Maria

Ada & Maria (AUT)

Ada and Maria are gonna make you sweat…

Maria and Ada are Vienna-based Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag instructors who seek inspiration not only in other dance styles, but also in exploring the unknown. Fast dancing and expressive footwork are a must for these 2, so dancing Collegiate Shag was an obvious choice. While being local pioneers in role switches, they’ve also perfected dancing with multiple people at the same time in both styles. Their classes contain a strong focus on technique as well as creating a friendly environment for all participants. Besides teaching and performing regularly, they frequently travel to international dance events, to satisfy their love for social dancing and increase their knowledge of swing dancing.
