Ali. I have an idea! Most people know me as a pragmatic person who loves to try and apply new ideas. Often these ideas are based on my interest areas such as science, psychology, stand up comedy or one of my many educational audio-books. In our dance classes, it is not uncommon to find me citing books like “Made to Stick” (by Dan and Chip Heath) when I talk about communication between the dance partners. Our passion and goal is to spread swing dancing, both in Germany and around the world. That’s why we are running several online activities, blogs, discussion groups, and free instructional videos that cover all aspects of the life of a dancer. Is it “Katja approved”? When you feel that your mind is just about to explode with new ideas, it is perfect to have an amiable wife whose greatest pleasure is to challenge them. This is why we established the “Katja approved” signature. If it is “Katja approved” – it is good! When preparing a class or workshop, I always make sure the material gets “Katja approved”. I am a Pack Leader! The “about me” section cannot be complete without a short description of our lovely dogs. Their names are Rufo and Lulu, and they`re two friendly rescue dogs from sunny Spain. From the great dog behaviorist Cesar Millan, I learned how to be a pack leader – the motto goes “exercise, discipline and affection”. Hmm, I just got an idea for our next dance class…
