The team

Swing Busters dance school was established by Janek and Áňa in October 2011.
We teach weekly Lindy Hop classes to beginners, intermediate and advanced dancers.
We love sharing our favourite dance in public classes, and we organise workshops and dance parties both in Prague and around the Czech Republic from time to time. We also perform at balls and at company parties.

The Lindy Hop is a partnered swing dance which evolved in Harlem, New York, in the 1920s and 1930s. Our lessons teach you Lindy Hop dance steps and moves in a fun way. They also teach you how to communicate in couples so that you can dance with anybody to any kind of swing music, and how to create a playful, fun and expressive dance. For that reason, our classes focus not only on steps, but also on the principles of leading and following, on mutual inspiration and on how to improvise to the music.

We love hearing your ideas and suggestions, and are always happy to create tailor-made projects together with you. You can hire us for weekend workshops, and for performances or taster classes at company parties, and we can also organise dance parties at both indoor and outdoor venues.

We are happy to answer your questions about swing dancing and everything else connected to this fabulous, fun dance.

We have a Facebook page where you can find all the latest news and also a FB group where we communicate together with our students.

Our current team of teachers:

Áňa

Áňa

She laughs a lot, with you, at you, at herself, at anybody, all with a good spirit. Nevertheless, she likes to be strict at times too so get ready for some serious learning if you have the ambition :).
She loves to dance everything and she loves to teach everybody.

You can tell who is the hyperactive in the room. Despite being a full time student, she appears to be there where crazy ideas are born and she tries to make them all happen. So if you have any, come to her and she’ll do her best to help you out with your idea of dance fun :).

Janek

Janek

He always knew he wanted to dance, but he had to find his way through sports such as basketball and ice hokey.
Swing dance caught his eye with its fun, diversity and playfulness which has never ceased to amaze him.
His goal is to make dancers dance to the music as an inspirational element not only as a rhythm keeper. He likes to inspire newcomers to find their love for swing as well as to keep improving the skills of dancers around him.

Keep on swingin´

Jíťa

Jíťa

Music & dance has been a part of her life since she was a kid. She likes all sorts of different styles but Swing and Lindy hop spoke to her through the outstanding possibility to express freely without many strict rules and to have lots of fun.
For her, couple dancing is a perfect example of the ability to agree on things with anyone, if we are willing to do so. :)

Klára

Klára

She began her dance career at the age of three, dancing in her parents living room. Since then, feeling encouraged to do some more, she studied a bit here and there of gymnastics, modern jazz dance, ballroom dance, belly dance, contemporary dance and even ballet. In 2009 she dug out the Lindy hop and dug into it. Swing dance, for her, gives her the freedom to express herself the way she wants.
When teaching, she likes to focus on the basis of the dance and likes to explore the wide possibilities of the movement, the cooperation of the two dance partners and the individual expression of them both.

Michael

Michael

He fell for couple dancing and swing music 20 years ago. So when the Lindy hop found its way back to the Czech republic, he was between the first ones who jumped in.
He wants to see people listening to the music and moving to it whilst having fun in the couple. So come to learn with him how to couple dance, not how to do steps only.

Marine

Marine

Marine has been dancing since she was 4 years old. After years of solo dancing, she began learning Lindy Hop in Leeds in the UK while she was there studying in 2012. She used to teach Lindy Hop and solo Jazz Roots and Charleston in Paris, France, afterwards. She met Guillaume for the first time during the Paris Lindy Exchange in 2013 and formed together a partnership that has been flourishing ever since.

Zuzka

Zuzka

Everything has started with ballet! She discovered swing dances not so long ago, and more she danced more she was into them. When she found out that swing is not only lindy hop, but also balboa and collegiate shag (and others), she wasn’t spotted anywhere else then among the swing dancers.
She’s been doing shag for two years. She likes to attend workshops in the Czech Republic, as well as abroad, and she’d like to help expand the local shag community.
Everybody is crazy about Stephen and Chanzie, but her idols are British Aila Floyd and Peter Ayres.
She likes to explore the mechanics of the dance and to find out the way to dance more naturally and comfortably.
Her goal is to share her experience and tips to all who fall for this dance.

– For me the dance is a joy and I love sharing that joy with my students.

Here you go, simple!

Adam

Adam

Adam went through a long journey of different dance styles, met ballroom dances and salsa on the way…but it was the swing dance that helped him to look at dancing with a completely new fresh eye. He loves music and jazz has always attracted him very much. When dancing, it all makes a totally new sense and dimension. He likes to help others express the music and build a nice dance communication in the couple.

Fred

Fred

He is English, but started dancing in Copenhagen. There as a lost foreigner he found his joy in going to 4 or more socials a week. Now, 5 years later he teaches, DJ strange jazz, and shag (ideally with songs around 300bpm). He dances because it’s the best instrument he can play, and he loves to be creative, energetic and unafraid of mistakes. And he hopes for his students to be as silly and free in their sick moves.

Míša

Míša

She jumped into Lindy hop from R’n’B in 2009 and went straight to loving this dance. Immediately started to travel to learn abroad where she also found Balboa, a new love, in times when it wasn’t yet popular in our country. In swing dance, she admires the partner communication and space for each dancer to express in the couple dance, the strongly supported feminine side and elegance, yet the ease, lightness but also the lovely “grounded” feeling. As a psychotherapist, she believes the swing dance perfectly mirrors and strenghtens human relationship, and brings back the elegance, gallantry and politesse in this time often forgotten.

PRODUCTION

Jitka is our pacemaker now, the swing wheel couldn’t turn fast enough without her.
She is the one you will hear on phone and who you are sending your lovely emails to.
If you want to hire us for your party, workshop, teambuilding… any project you have planned, she is your woman!
But do not think she is only a production person, Jitka is actually a professional dancer and teacher too, eventough not of swing….yet. :)
