Joseph & Charlotte are currently two of the UK’s busiest swing dance teachers of vintage dances such as the 1940s Lindy Hop, 20’s Charleston, Black Bottom, Blues and Authentic Jazz, inspiring people with their fun, high energy classes.
Having learnt from, inspired by and worked with some of the 1930’s old timers,such as Frankie Manning, Norma Miller and early teachers who revived the Lindy Hop, they specialise in retaining the authenticity of a by gone era, with lots of original moves, but with a modern, technical, historical, informative and a fun singing twist. You leave their classes, feeling excited, like you’ve just seen an action movie.
They’ve performed in theatres, the world famous Royal Albert Hall, Grand Palais for FIFA, taught in USA, AFRICA, and all over Europe including: UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Spain, Greece, Norway, Turkey, Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Netherlands, Israel, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Ireland, Austria, etc.
