We’re welcoming back wonderful Thomas Bachmann and Verena Guschal to Gothenburg. Two fantastic West Coast Swing instructors from Germany. It’ll be a full weekend of dancing with both classes and social dances on Saturday and Sunday!

Thomas is a swing dance studio owner based in Augsburg, Germany. He has trained at the Iwanson International School of Contemporary Dance in Munich for several years but his passion are all swing dances including Lindy Hop, Balboa, Vintage Jazz and especially West Coast Swing. Besides swing he is fascinated by psychology and he is a trained hypnosis coach so you better not get sleepy during his classes 😉
