You may have met her as a jazz fan and DJ, or perhaps as an MC and host. She has been teaching lindy hop and vernacular jazz for over 10 years and is thrilled to be continue learning about the rich culture of jazz, and the people and places that contributed to what it is today.

YANA SANAMYANTZ

 

Yana is an active swing dancer, performer, teacher and dj.

She was surrounded by jazz since childhood, while dancing came much later. Since the first lindy hop lesson,

she fell in love with the swing scene

and started devoting all her time to music and dancing. Raised with love

in Moscow Swing Dance Society she shortly became a teacher there and

in a few years started to travel for sharing and finding knowledge.

 

Yana is conveying joy, respect and

love for the dance with her students.

JOHN TIGERT

 

Jon Tigert found swing dancing at

the tender age of 15 and never looked back. Now, somewhat older than 15,

Jon shares his knowledge of the dance all over the United States and the World. You may know him from his roles at events such as Lindy Focus, Lindy Fest, The Canadian Swing Dance Championships, The Chinese Lindy Hop Championships, Herrang Dance Camp,

The International Lindy Hop Championships and many more.

 

Known for his concise language, historical knowledge and and infinite supply of dad jokes, Jon's classes are immensely informative and entertaining. Beyond teaching, Jon is often seen behind the microphone as a well known MC and host, behind the computer as

a DJ, or behind the drum kit playing

and singing with various bands.
