Julio Mendez and the Lindy Hop.
I always felt a natural connection with the music of Swing and I always felt a link with music of African origin from the Rio de la Plata (where I comming from). Dances like the Murga, or the Candombe I feel that they could fit perfectly in the Lindy Hop.

My first Lindy Hop lesson was in 1998 in Denver U.S, at the Mercury Cafe. Then I lived in London for a while and it was there that I really learned to dance Lindy Hop, going regularly to learn at the 100 Club in Oxford Street with Simon classes, and dancing at the memorable parties with live music.
I also went regularly to Ballam Pub where I was also able to practice and learn.

Later in Zurich I had the idea of giving a space in my Dance School Club el Social, for the Lindy Hop. It was thus that Tea Time Swing was born in the old Social on Hohlstrasse in Altstteten and years later the Boge Swing in e Viadukto.
