Schedule of Classes:
Gas and Tina, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, have been dancing together since 2008 and travel as much as possible to dance all over the world. They have backgrounds in gymnastics and acrobatics, which has a significant influence on their dancing. Gas has played a very important role in expanding the Argentine Lindy Hop scene. He was a founding member of Happy Feet, organizing a festival and putting on two plays in theatre houses, (which he choreographed and directed, and they both danced in). Tina, who was a dancer while she was a child and has spent most of her adult life studying English, has now hopped into Gas' lindy hop madness and is now running the festival with him and trying to make the Argentine scene grow. They have danced with big bands like Antigua Jazz Band and Kustbandet and have performed in Switzerland with Argentine and Swiss musicians. They teach regularly in Buenos Aires and have had the opportunity to teach in Brazil, Sweden and Holland. They both put huge amounts of energy into their projects; all this energy can easily be seen in their dancing. Together they are dynamite.
