Veronika is a passionate dancer and scientist and Janči is a professional dancer. This connection brings unrestrained creative energy, dynamics, extra emphasis on musicality without losing the precision of movement on the dancefloor. At their class you will be able to try the dances that preceded swing. Dances that go hand in hand with ragtime music and early jazz. This class will enrich the repertoire of each Lindy Hopper and at the same time helps all who are still at the beginning of their dance journey.
