    Ana Maeso & Samuel Gaudó

    Ana raised in a small village in La Alpujarra, (Spain) Ana grew up loving experimental jazz, black metal and professional Pókemon. She studied Math and Literary Studies and unexpectedly found swing dance through her literary research. Its room for intimacy and improvisational qualities captivated her right away. In her training and teaching she strives to balance respect for the music, connection with other dancers, and seeking individuality through dance.
    Samu was born in Aragon (Spain), studied Engineering and Illustration. Further down the line, he fell deeply in love with all members of the Swing Dance family. The thing that caught his eye when saw people dancing for the first time were the smiles in everyone’s faces. That’s what he tries to transmit in class: the joy, love and respect for this music and dance.
    Both teach: Lindy Hop, Authentic Jazz, Blues, Shag at Rayuela Swing in Berlin.
