Lindy Cats Competition
… we like to encourage you to try something different, so here is our challenge for you…
Starting from 01.10.2023 and ending on Saturday, 21.10.2023 at 5 pm, we encourage you to film yourself dancing in a public place either in your hometown, in Graz or on the way to Graz, before or during the festival.
The song you should dance to is any version of….it couldn’t be different… « All the Cats join in »
Once you filmed it, all you need to do is upload on the Lindy Cats Festival Event page on Facebook and tag yourself and all the dancers in it. You can also tag the Lindy Cats Instagram-Page.
There will be great prices for the three winning teams. Each team will receive two tickets for amazing partner festivals or the next Lindy Cats Workshop-Weekend.
One video will win by the largest numbers of likes and other reactions, the others will be selected by our festival teachers. Keep in mind that the video should embrace the Lindy Hop values and the idea of dancing in public. So the more crowded the place, the better.

Petra Starman & Janez Šepetavc (SLO)
Fast cat paws! Petra & Janez are gonna take care of that…
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.
Ana Maeso Arana (ESP/GER) & Alberto Meucci (IT/PL)
… creating an dance environment of growth and fun Ana & Alberto come along…
Born in Italy, Alberto Meucci discovered Swing dance in 2015, and he hasn’t stopped since. Shortly after beginning his dance journey, Alberto started traveling to various festivals across Europe, where he learned from different artists and participated in competitions. Following a couple of residencies in Budapest and Vilnius, he has now made Warsaw, Poland, his home/dance base, teaching at the dance school ShimSham.pl. While he still enjoys competing and ‘throwing down’ on the dance floor, his favorite moments are undoubtedly spent social dancing. Alberto finds inspiration in every lindyhopper he meets, as each encounter on the dance floor brings something new. Dancing fuels his energy and curiosity, driving him to continually explore the history and culture of the dance. His pockets are filled with rhythmic variations and…jokes 😉
They’ll be teaching Lindy Hop as well as the Authentic Jazz classes at the festival.
