Adamo discovered the blues when he went to his first swing festival. He left the party at 7am when he realized he was falling asleep on his partner's shoulder. Ironically, when he got to bed he couldn't sleep, still excited from that amazing experience and looking forward to the next bluesy night. Adamo teaches at Blues In My Shoes in London and has taught/will teach in Ireland, Spain and France. He is recognized as one of the most original, intense and musical dancer of the UK dance scene and has recently competed and placed 1st at the Berlin Blues Explosion in the division Jack and Jill and 3rd in the Strictly Blues.

Has been dancing Lindy Hop for more than 15 years. She started dancing in Portland Oregon where her passion for the music, style and social scene bloomed. Gaia has since danced and taught all over the world and Co-runs Mouthful O' Jam a successful vintage inspired monthly club in London. She has built her dance repertoire to over the years and focuses heavily on Blues, Balboa, Charleston and other vintage dances.

"Blues dancing gives us important spectrum on all other partner dances. Attention to detail and physical communication allows for a wider understanding of that indescribable connection and dynamic flow, not just in dancing but in life." -Gaia
