The Instructors

Matt - West Coast Swing & Lindy Hop

Persuaded by his peers and family to take his first Lindy Hop lesson, Matt discovered a passionate love for swing dancing and the social atmosphere. Lindy Hop was the gateway to Matt Richey wanting to learn any dance style he could find and trained in ballet, jazz, modern and many other partner dances! Matt is now a familiar face in the swing community, having traveled to hundreds of events and competing and placing nationally and internationally. He is known for fun-loving energy, musicality, showmanship, and performance. Striving to capture the image, character, and spirit of vintage dance, he is now the highest-ranked crossover dancer doing both Lindy Hop and West Coast swing. In 2018 Matt was inducted to the California Swing Dance Hall of Fame. As much as Matt loves swing dancing, he loves teaching and sharing his love for dance and music just as much! Currently resides in Orange County, CA and teaches primarily at Atomic Ballroom and all around the Southern California area.

Natalia - Lindy Hop

Natalia Eristavi has been dancing since she was 5 years old. Like many young girls, she explored Ballet, Tap, Jazz and even figure skating. In 2010 Natalia began dancing Lindy Hop at ATOMIC Ballroom and came to not only love it, but practically obsess over it. Shortly after, she discovered Balboa and obsessed over it all the same. As an outcome of consistently practicing almost every day, she progressed rapidly. Natalia adores teaching and finds it a growing experience for both herself and her students. Her goal with each student is to help them find what she believes makes Lindy Hop a beautiful dance. Once you find it and experience it, not a lot will compare.

Brenden and Ayla

These to amazing people have been dancing for many years in the local BC and Alberta dance scene.  Recently Ayla was one of the Knockdown Partner Draw Champions at Lindy Bout XIII.  Brenen and Ayla have taught locally for a number of years for workshops and regular classes. They bring a technical aspect to their teaching and specialize in the various dance routines that you can find around the world in most swing clubs. We are happy to include them this year in the Swing Summit Winter Retreat 2020.

Brenden and Ayla will also be manning the DJ booth all weekend long!
