Clàudia Fonte explores and embraces all kinds of playful ways in her dancing. Her main source is Swing music. Furthermore, she likes to connect and communicate with the other dancers and get inspired by them in partner dancing, as well as in solo dancing.
Sonia has been dancing different styles of dance since the age of 5, but Lindy Hop is the one that has captured her heart. She has been teaching regular classes in Barcelona, Spain since 2000, and over Europe for the last 15 years. With a classical and jazz background, she is well-known in her city as a fantastic social dancer and a dedicated traveling international instructor. As a teacher, she is known to be approachable, patient and willing to dance with her students.
One of her current projects, together with Héctor Artal and Clàudia Fonte, is the Jazz Messengers Company; where they are continuously developing a natural flow from one step to the next through training and synchronization of rhythmical movement.
Professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer since 2006. He started dancing ballroom in 1999 and discovered his passion for Argentinian Tango and Cuban Salsa. Since then, Hector has also danced Flamenco, Contemporary dance, Afrocuban Rumba, and Jazz. Lindy Hop came into his life in 2005 and as years passed, this dance became more important for him. Hector loves to study different dances from the roots respecting their origins to better understand every single move.
Right now, Hector is developing his project called Movin’ in Jazz where he explores body movements, sequences and choreographies for Jazz music and Swing rhythm. All the influences he has had appear in Movin’ in Jazz.

Oskay is an avid DJ, who has been listening to the music for far longer than he has been dancing to it. He loves to spend his evenings and weekends digging through his library, on the search for fresh songs to keep everyone entertained. While he has a soft spot for playful, slower songs (so long as they groove!), he can just as often be heard saying, "204 BPM isn't all that much".
Enzo started dancing in 2016. He was directly into it and danced on almost every social dance In 2019 he started DJing and in 2022 teaching Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz. In his local scene he is famous for his very groovy and rhythmical DJ Sets that will burn everyone's feet. For Enzo there is a big interest to really understand the culture. He researches a lot in the history, music and tries to integrate this in his DJ Sets, classes and communicate the values to build a respectful and open-minded community.
