He is known in the Swing dance community for his powerful acrobatics and aerials, while his background in Tango gives his blues style drama and strength, grounded in a sensitive connection with his partner. Gastón’s passion for swing has taken him around the world, and he has taught and performed in Argentina, Brazil, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, England, E.E.U.U., Australia, Portugal, Germany and more.
Alba started Swing dancing because the Swing people were exactly the crowd she was looking for in a new city. Over time the dancing on the dance floor led her to ecstasy, and she was really hooked when jazz music found a big space in her heart. There was no way back then!. She loves all the different dance styles of the swing era: Lindy Hop, Blues, Balboa and authentic Jazz, all of which she trains in and teaches regularly.
