Serge and Sarah both started out dancing and teaching lindy hop and charleston at the UMN Swing Club in 2006. Since then, they have featured prominently as instructors in various local and regional events. They continually seek out dancing, competitions, and workshops throughout the country and have even performed for Midwest Lindy Fest’s Showcase and Paramount Picture’s opening of Footloose.
Serge and Sarah’s teaching style is based on developing a solid connection with your partner and the energy of the room in order to bring out the strong conversational quality of swing dancing. Drawing from their extensive knowledge of different forms of movement such as ballet, figure skating, and Ukrainian Hapak, Serge and Sarah bring a perspective to their lessons not often seen from other instructors.
Above all, they strive to instill confidence in their students and teach them to enjoy and feel good about what they’re doing.
