«The main idea of our dancing is expressing personal feeling and understanding of the music through the dance. So to be able to express ourself more or less fully, we definitely need to have a very flexible and strongly built up instrument – couple dance technique. So we are much into technique and theory, but even though it`s not the main goal itself. Our goal is freedom of self- expression through the contact in the couple. To achieve that we need to own the instrument we`ll use for it first.
Five words to describe our philosophy: Awareness, knowledge, technique, musicality, humanity.»
