Natasha and Olivier are succesful instructors, competitors and performers. They have won numerous contests and just placed 3rd at the highest ranked Balboa competition in 2011, the American Classic Balboa Championships. More than competing they enjoy social dancing and sharing their passion with others. Natasha fills the most complicated step with grace and makes it look so easy. Olivier is an amazing leader and bewitches each lady with his French charm and esprit. Their creativity and musical synergies are matched.
Natasha is Russian and has been dancing since she was seven (ballroom dancing, competing and teaching at a very high level). Olivier is French and discovered his big passion for Swing in 2001. They met each other at the Herräng Dance Camp in Sweden in 2001 and teach together since 2003. They teach many styles of swing like Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie, Balboa and West Coast Swing. They are also the main organizers behind the the acclaimed festivals Balboa on the Promenade and Westie on the Promenade which happen annually at the Cote d'Azur.
