Special guests at the first of the Winter Jamboree #14 series of events
Cherry & Filip POL first met dancing in Poland, and after Collegiate Shag was introduced to Warsaw in 2014, it wasn’t long before they partnered up, joined the Warsaw Shag Team, and started taking the Shag scene by storm!
– Cherry, do you want to be the best in the world one day?
– Yes, why not…
– Me too, so let’s get to work!
The first class they gave together was held in a Zoo for a group of children, now they are regular teachers of Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag for SWINGOUT.PL and beyond, performing, competing – and winning (!) competitions internationally.
Their dance is full of energy. Cherry has loved dancing for as long as she can remember. She started her training at the age of 6 in ballet, contemporary, ballroom and jazz. On the dance floor she is renowned for her playful style, combining elegance with a wild Latin temperament. Filip has been a musician for many years, playing the guitar, trombone and mandoline. He’s a founding member of Polish gypsy jazz band ‘The Cajun Spices’. His passion is reflected in his movements making his dance expressive and unique. They are fresh, full of enthusiasm, and eager to face any challenge!
DJ JUMPIN’ JIM UK
You’d be hard pressed to find a fella with more experience both on the dance floor or behind the decks… DJ Jumpin’ Jim has been spinning records on the vintage scene for the last 35 years! He earned his name as a young Teddy Boy back in the day thanks to his unique bopping style, and his passion for all things that rock, jump, swing, and hop has only grown through the years. He is a much-requested DJ at all the major UK vintage events and festivals. He thrives on blasting out hot stonking R’n’B, or whipping dancers into a frenzy with some wild western swing, but as a seasoned disk jockey and a dancer himself, he is ever sensitive to the mood on the floor and never fails to satisfy the crowd’s dancing desires…
