Skye Humphries

Skye was first persuaded to dance Lindy Hop by his mother in 1996, but quickly discovered his own love of social dancing, swing music and the Lindy Hop community.  This led him to a wider interest in dance and he took classes in ballet, modern, and Jazz.  Since 1999 he has taught wherever Lindy Hop is done- from national weekends to international dance camps.  He is a founding member of some the most influential modern Lindy Hop troupes- including Minnie’s Moochers, Mad Dog, and the Silver Shadows.  Skye has also won titles at all of the major Lindy Hop competitions- including ULHS, ILHC, ALHC and the World Lindy Hop Championships.  His involvement with Lindy Hop sparked his wider interest in America’s history and cultural heritage- leading him to pursue American Studies at The George Washington University where he received his master’s degree in 2007. 

Joris Focquaert & Yana Sanamyantz

Joris Focquaert comes from Ghent, Belgium. He discovered the Lindy Hop in Copenhagen when he was studying at the Commedia School for mime & physical theatre. A background in the art of clowning, he takes his unique expressivity to his social dances & performances, forming his attitude towards the dance. In class, Joris tries to share his best of ideas. He is one of the starting figures of swing dance school 'Crazy Legs' (Ghent) & vernacular Jazz dance troupe 'the Dipsy Doodles'. Today he is a busy working dancer in Belgium & abroad, next to studying the Jazz trombone.

Yana Sanamyanzt (Rus) is an active swing dancer, performer, teacher and DJ. She was surrounded by jazz since childhood, while dancing came much later. Since the first lindy hop lesson, she fell in love with the swing scene and started devoting all her time to music and dancing. Raised with love in Moscow Swing Dance Society she shortly became a teacher there and in a few years started to travel for sharing and finding knowledge.  In class, Yana is conveying joy, respect and love for the dance with her students.

More Info

Registration is open!

Getting there: Our studio is located in Viktoriastraße 3, 86150 Augsburg - at the Augsburg central station. The entrance is directly at Railway 1. You'll find the studio at the first floor. From the central train station it is only a 5 minutes walk to the center of the city. 

Airport: The closest airport is Franz-Josef-Strauß Airport in Munich (MUC). From there take the public transportation to Munich central station and a train to „Augsburg Hauptbahnhof“. From the airport in Stuttgart (STR) there is a very cheap flixbus connection to Augsburg. Interesting flight options can be found from Memmingen Airport (FMM) by choosing Ryanair or Wizzair for example.

All of these airports above are between 60 - 90 minutes away from Augsburg by car and they have reasonable connections - between 90 to 120 minutes travelling time - by train or bus as well 

Hotels: There are many hotels nearby, for example the Ibis hotels at Königsplatz or Hauptbahnhof. Both of them are in walking distance from the event location (3-5 minutes). We also heard from many students that the youth hostel in Augsburg is quite nice and a cheaper option - Expecially the breakfast should be nice there!

We can also recommend to stay at the Grandhotel Cosmopolis. It’s a very special place in Augsburg. Hostel, hotel and home for refugees at the same time and every room is designed by an artist. They also have the concept „Pay as much as you can“. 

Workshops: Please understand that we allow only workshop attendants to enter the studio. This includes the bar area as well. If you did not book the currently running workshop please do not enter. Please understand that decisions of our staff regarding levels and auditions are final. Thank you :')
