Jessy dances since she was a little girl, she started with Boogie Woogie at the age of 6. Since then dancing is her biggest passion When you see her performing you can see, you can feel her heart. Whenever she hears music she never can stand still, needs to move to the melody.
Her sensitive and funny kind of teaching makes it so useful for students at any age….
Jessy had a environmental education and now works in the economic division…
Despite this job all her life is dedicated to dancing, especially the swing dances and the 50s lifestyle

Markus started dancing when he was 11 years old together with Jessy. He´s dancing since the year 2000. Dancing runs in his blood. He loves to move to the music and this is what makes him tick, the interpretation of the rhythm and melody. So he gives every dance his personal touch and with his funny way he is able to make almost everybody laugh.
Right now Markus is working as a driver and is also taking care of his wife and their two kids which are also already quite dancy J . But every spare minute is packed with dancing and preperation for dancing.

So their connection is more than 15 years of dancing together which means they know each other very well, they even know sometimes what the other one is thinking… This is what makes them such a harmonious couple.
When it comes to teaching their main topics are Leading & Following paired with Musicality.  And they do their best to pass their knowlegde with the biggest fun to the students.

One of their biggest international success was the Vice European Champion in Juniors Class aswell as more than 50 wins in Juniors and Main Class in Austria. Right now the two are 4 times austrian Champion.

In 2011 Markus and Jessy started with teaching and were welcomed in a lot of international camps as in Ukraine, Russia, Germany, England and many more…
Since then they travel around the world spreading their knowlegde and enthusiasm for swing dancing. The fun, harmony and their „Viennese Sense of Humor“ is what makes them superior and memorable in what they do.

They were there for the all the Boogie trains, so they also had to be here on our 5th anniversary!
