Andrea & Mario (Zagreb)
Andrea Vozila & Mario Švigir - Swing magic from Zagreb!
Andrea is called "The Swing Mama of Croatian swing dancing" for a good reason. Her restless feet and great love for dancing made her the most energetic person on the dance floor.
Andrea has been dancing as long as she remembers and her musical education is more than an advantage. Her path has brought her to her current partner Mario with whom she had started as a competition couple in Latin – American and Ballroom dances. Soon they found themselves very successfully training kids and teaching social classes due to their unique approach, thus making things easily achievable while encouraging others to live up to their full potential.
Andrea's teaching and dancing is focused on getting dancers closer to themselves. She strongly believes in individuality and is convinced that developing your own movements helps you to achieve great things, to connect with your partners and to express the pure happiness of dancing.
Mario is a passionate and avid social dancer and instructor.
He is a pioneer of swing dancing in Croatia, being the first experienced Croatian teacher and has been bringing swing dancing to the Croation dance floor since 2011. His vast knowledge and previous teaching and competing experience in Latin American and Standard dance served as a great background for his new career as a swing teacher.
What matters to him the most is sincere and natural dancing as well as a strong leader-follower connectivity.
Lindy Hop & Balboa dancers, Mario and Andrea, constantly work on the development of the couple dancing. Lindy Hop is the dance in which they can openly evolve all techniques that they have learned throughout their dancing lives. African dance, Argentinian tango, latin rhythms, classical dance and all other social dance styles are important disciplines that had an important part in their learning of the dance.
