Angela Andrew has a background in music and dance. Angela is a self-taught dancer. Hailing from the first generation of lockers, poppers and breakdancers, her love of jazz music led her to search for the roots of street-dance. She discovered Lindy Hop in 1991 at the famous London Club 'Jitterbugs'. Angela is passionate about social dancing. An explosive element of London's (and the World's) swing dance scene, she is is renowned for her energy and improvisational skills on the dance floor. Influenced by the style of the "Old School" she incarnates today and is keen to retain the true spirit of lindy-hop: taking pleasure with a dash of humour.

Boogaloo is a style of music from New York, which was popular in the United States in the 70’s. Originally, Boogaloo was created by Afro-American and Afro-Caribbean musicians from Harlem (NY). Celebrating together and mixing their rhythms, Boogaloo is born from the fusion of jazz, rock and roll, bomba, son and rhythm and blues.  The term "boogaloo" comes from "boogie-woogie". The dance is built on the basic step of chachacha and includes elements of salsa, swing enclosed by a funky groove.

Steve "STEE.K BOOGIE" KUENZI, a self-taught street dancer, started dancing (B-boying) in 1993. Later, he joined the CDF Breaker's pioneering group of Hip Hop culture in Chaux- de-Fonds, (Switzerland). Currently, dancer, teacher and choreographer, he keeps traveling (USA, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Cuba, Brazil, Belgium ...) to dance, improve and share his knowledge.

Popping originated in the late ‘60s on the American West Coast. The term 'popping' describes the hard and abruptly appearing isolation movements that are characteristic of the dance. Popping is based on slow robot-like movements. Exact isolation and contraction of individual parts of the body creates illusions of weightlessness or remote-controlled movements. Matching with the beat turns popping into a dance form.
