Laura Andersen
Beskrivelse

Growing up in a family of musicians, Laura gained a deep understanding of music and rhythms in her early childhood. When she later found her passion in dancing, her musical understanding helped set speed to her learning curve and she quickly found her flair in the art of moving to music - the art of dance.

Laura instantly fell in love with the joyful and living swing dances, especially the Lindy Hop, the Jitterbug, and the Charleston. The always happy and smiling swing environment gave Laura a drive and an eagerness to learn and in 2015, she started teaching at DTU Dancing, passing on her knowledge and her passion for dance. She has tried many different dance styles which all gave her a deeper understanding of dancing and helped to further improve and expand her musical horizon. However, she enjoys the jazzy rhythms of the swing music most of all and always keeps coming back to the joyfulness and happiness of the swing dances. To quote Frankie Manning “I’ve never seen a Lindy Hopper who wasn’t smiling. It’s a happy dance. It makes you feel good.”

In Laura’s classes, you can be sure to find passion and tons of smiles as well as a fun and engaging learning environment. And to add another quote from the amazing jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald “Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”

Libor Zverina
Beskrivelse
New friendships, people, community, nice energy, pure happiness, lots of fun and smile - these are things Libor value very much in swing dancing and that is also what you should be looking for in the class. "Lindy hop creates connection to your own body, it is communication with your partner and it is a way you can express the music", Libor says. He never stops exploring these aspects of dancing, which create the base in his teaching. During the class, new material is broken down into simple parts and explained to a great technical detail. A strong emphasis is put on practice. "It''''s social, it''''s physical, it''''s fun", he concludes about swing dancing.

Marina Cholakova
Beskrivelse
Born on the Balkans, Marina has been raised with the tradition of Bulgarian folklore music and dance. She has developed a sense for rhythm, which she later used in the traditional horo dances and jazz ballet classes at school. It was only when moving to Copenhagen, that she encountered Argentinian tango. She joined the first DTU Argentinian workshop in 2014 and has been enchanted by the music and the dance ever since. After a few years, learning from some of the best tango teachers and schools in Copenhagen, she is now part of the friendly Copenhagen tango environment as a volunteer at Camilonga and is helping out the tango beginners at DTU with a few tips about the dance.

Sankhya Mohanty
Beskrivelse
Beauty and harmony governed by eternal cycles of change" - a deep-rooted philosophical paradigm that draws Sankhya to salsa cubana, particularly the Rueda. He has spent the last 7 years travelling to over 25 festivals and dancing in more than 13 countries, trying to sneak a peek into the rich world hidden behind the loud music and flashy costumes that people see on the TV/youtube videos as Salsa. His insights and observations reflect themselves in his classes, as he attempts to not only introduce the complex hand-feet coordinations to future salser@s but also take them on a journey through the evolution of the dance and the music. In the classes, he insists on a focus on details and techniques, though rumors abound of a more festy Mexican doppelganger replacing him often in the DTU B208 basement on salsa evenings.

Steeven Spangsdorf
Beskrivelse
I have been practising ballroom dancing competitively for 12 years, starting at the age of 14. Ballroom caught me with its adaptability in music, style, feeling and atmosphere. In my view the strength of ballroom lies in the variety of its dances. It challenges the dancer to quick adaptation from elegance and slow flows to feisty romance and temper. I very much enjoy the interplay between technique and expression all while making the dance look and feel seamless and fluent.
Steeven graduated in 2017 with an MSc in materials engineering from DTU and was a part of DTU Dancing for several years during his studies. He has since been conducting a few workshops, also in DTU Dancing, and might visit dance floors around Copenhagen on a Saturday night.
