Clàudia Fonte
Barcelona, Spain

Clàudia explores and embraces all kinds of playful ways in her Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz. She loves creating novel movements that are inspired from all dance forms and place them on a strong foundation of classic swing rhythms. This makes her dancing look authentic both in the sense of being Swing and being herself.

Her passion for the dance is very true to the Swing era, when it was all about pushing the boundaries of what is possible while being grounded and driven by the swinging music. This tasteful game between respecting but also transforming the roots gives her unique ways to interact and have a joyful dance with her partners.

Clàudias background in physiotherapy and her deep understanding of how to best use your anatomy will help you gain valuable insight into a higher body awareness and how to express yourself more freely.

Clàudia & Ali:
What brought Clàudia and Ali together is the magic that happens when they social dance. What makes the dancing between these two so amazing is that the traditional concept of lead and follow seems to completely disappear. What you get instead is two swing dance enthusiasts creating an amazing moment together, with two refined dancers listening to and complementing each other far beyond the traditional roles of “leader” and “follower”.

Teaching how you can create your own “magic on the dancefloor” is definitely one of the most abstract and hard to break down concepts. However, Ali and Clàudia’s combined skills as dancers with great passion for geeky details, together with Clàudia’s background in physiotherapy and Ali’s scientific approach from his work in chemistry, they know how to break down complex concepts into learnable elements, even for the most “hard-to define-but-most-important-to-have” qualities of the dance!
