David & Catia - Falling


David & Catia - Groove

David & Catia

These two beautiful Portuguese dancers started dancing and teaching together in 2011, and have gone on to become sought-after international teachers, mainly due to their aptitude for understanding the fundamentals of good movement (dancing) and explaining it in an easily grasped and applicable way.

David is an addicted social dancer. You’ll rarely see him not dancing while there is groovy swing music playing. He’s also a geek, that cannot avoid himself of deconstructing the nuclear bio-mechanics and rhythmic structure of the dance and music. And he loves to share this knowledge/vision almost as much as he loves hugs.

Cátia is a person’s person. She’s always caring for everybody, and it shows when it comes to teaching where she uses an intuitive and organic approach to bring out to the best in each student. You’ll rarely see her not smiling.
