Alba
 

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.
After catching the bug in 2007 (and travelling to an international workshop or event every month for a year!!) she was asked to start teaching in Leeds for the local Lindy Hop Society. She moved to London in 2010 and joined Swing Patrol as a teacher. Dancing grew on her and she held the dream to have enough time to train and develop her dancing at the level she wished, to become a full time teacher and an organizer in her hometown Madrid. In November 2012 she decided to have the guts to fulfill her dream. She quit her job and moved back to Madrid, where she opened a swing school, bringing international top leads to help her with her mission (Kenny Nelson, Shorty George and finally Gastón Fernández, her current dance partner). This new step in her life is leading her to being asked to teach internationally with increasing frequency at different international events to teach Lindy, Blues or Balboa: Sweden, Barcelona, Paris, Toulouse, La Guiole, Valencia, New York. She is eager to share with everybody her passion for dance that has taken over her life.
