Teachers & DJs

Izabella Kowalska and Attila Pártos

Izabella Kowalska is a Champion West Coast swing dancer. She has danced west coast swing since 2009 and she has been teaching it for many years in Hungary and abroad. Being one of the most creative dancers in Europe, Izabella will bring tons of aha moments to most of the followers.

Izabella is an All Star/Champion dancer. She has always been there among the top 5 best dancers of this genre. She got her last award before the pandemic when she won the 1st place in the Hungarian Open Strictly in 2019, the 3rd place in the D-town Swing J&J in 2018 and she was awarded 1st place in UK Champs J&J in 2017.

Attila began his career as a ballroom dancer. He taught latin and standard dances for years, however, after fifteen years, in the possession of numerous Budapest and Hungarian Championships titles, he retired when his first child was born. Although, he was never able to part from dancing completely, always yearning to be back on the dancefloor. In 2013 he met West Coast Swing and soon became addicted to it. Recognising the different aspects of ballroom dancing and West Coast Swing, this dance became his passion, mostly because of it's endless possibilities and freedom. Attila was unable to let competing go either, so in 2014 he attended his first competition and in three years time he made it to the prestigious All-Star chategory. He is currently teaching both in Hungary and other countries for groups and private lessons, dance is a part of his everyday life.
