BSDC's Balboa and St. Louis Shag week with Olga & Andreas (June 2019)
BSDC is proud to announce a week with Olga Marina and Andreas Olsson in residence. Expect weekday and weekend classes on Balboa, St. Louis Shag and more, with both solo and couples classes.
Many of you know or have heard of them: as Balboa and Lindy Hop teachers they have been touring the world, bringing their unique personality and style to many swing dance communities. Now for the first time, they will be in Brussels!
Olga was born into a family of teachers and since early years has been an energetic live wire – studying music, doing athletics, martial arts and gymnastics. In 2007 she was introduced to Lindy Hop and this is where the real passion story begins. She got dance hooked and started to explore more of the dance world by getting into Blues and later Balboa. She has been actively travelling the globe in pursuit of more opportunities to dance, learn and compete. Later she began to share her love for swing music and dance by teaching. Now Olga is the international balboa instructor, teaching solo and couple Balboa all over the world.
Andreas was introduced to Lindy Hop in 2001 and a few years later to Balboa. Andreas teaches dance because he loves to see students learn and improve. As Andreas sees it, teaching is inspiring since it offers a possibility to contribute to the ever-changing dance style and scene. Andreas claims to be the unchallenged record holder (so far!) of most hours spent on social swing dance floors in Stockholm. He is an energizer bunny, and only takes a break to change into another colorful tie or t-shirt with a funny prnt!
He has been placed in a number of prestigious competitions in both Lindy Hop and Balboa around the world with a number of well known swing dancers. He is also a history lover and one of the very few marine archaeologists in the world.
