Fancy (USA) & Heiko (CH)

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Fancy fell in love with Jazz, Lindy Hop and Shag in 2008. She’s been hooked ever since, devoting herself to the technical mastery of historical dances and her own unique style. She has appeared in music videos and television shows in the US, Mexico and France, and has been fortunate enough to share her passion for dancing in classrooms all over the world. She was nominated for the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame in 2014 and is a five-time Shag champion of the National Jitterbug Championships (four with Shag partner Steve Sayer). Be sure to ask her to dance!

Heiko has been dancing for more than a decade now and has been teaching for many years. His love for swing is not limited to just one discipline, be it Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, or Balboa, Heiko is master of them all and on the dance floor he enjoys mixing styles according to the tempo and energy of the music. Resident instructor for Basel Jitterbugs and regular competition winner, you may also recognize him from the teacher line ups at major international dance events such as Rock that Swing, BCN Shag Festival or Swing Paradisel.
