Markus started dancing when he was 11 years old, together with Jessy he´s dancing since the year 2000. Dancing runs in his blood, he loves to move to the music and this is what makes him tick, the interpretation of the rhythm and melody. So he gives every dance his personal touch and with his funny way he is able to make almost everybody laugh. Right now Markus is working as a driver and is also taking care of his wife and their two kids which are also already quite dancy. But every spare minute is packed with dancing and preperation for dancing.
This is what makes them such a harmonious couple. When it comes to teaching their main topics are Leading & Following paired with Musicality and they do their best to pass
their knowlegde with the biggest fun to the students.
Their biggest successes are
* Vice European Champion in Juniors Class
* more than 50 wins in Juniors and Main Class in Austria
* 4 times National Champions
In 2011 Markus and Jessy started with teaching and were welcomed in a lot of international camps as in Ukraine, Russia, Germany, England and many more…
Since then they travel around the world spreading their knowlegde and enthusiasm for swing dancing. The fun, harmony and their „Viennese Sense of Humor“ is what
makes them superior and memorable in what they do.
Thorbjørn was already a triple Boogie Woogie World Champion when he met Flora and when they started out as a couple, both in dance and in life. They started competitive dancing together in 2014. Later in the same year, they became Boogie Woogie World and Europe Champions during their first competitions. The following year, they defended their title and were crowned World Champions again.

Nevertheless, Thorbjørn et Flora remain the most approachable couple to the dancers, and the most popular.
