Why we started dancing together
Cat & Ben met in a Swing Festival in 2012. They both became super professional teachers working and building their artistic career many years in the same company. This famous and international company brought them together, even if Ben was in Swing Patrol London and Cat in Swing Patrol Berlin, but they share the same ideas. Since then they both developed a big interest for the fast swing tempos and they are very happy dancing Charleston together. Being experts in the 1920s style, they can’t hide their strong passion, traveling in time to this jazz music era makes them simply reborn again!
