Find out a little more about who does what at Key Town Swing.

Ron Smits

Ron was playing in a 50’s/60’s band, where he often saw people dancing Boogie Woogie. Interested in this dance, he started taking lessons. Soon after, he discovered Lindy Hop, which opened a whole world of Swing dances to him. Since 2011, Ron has been dancing, DJ’ing and teaching at events around the world. Whether it’s Lindy Hop, Boogie, Blues or Shag, it’s impossible to keep Ron off the dance floors. In classes, he finds listening to and playing with the music and being aware of your partner most important.

Ron teaches Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag.

Lotte Dijkstra

Lotte has been dancing for almost her whole life. She started taking ballet lessons when she was four, and later went on to do modern ballet and jazz. In 2015, while dancing for a New Orleans Jazz style band, she got hooked on Charleston and Lindy Hop. She started frequenting international festivals and workshops for Lindy Hop, and later added Blues dancing. In classes Lotte focusses mainly on creativity and expressing your personality through dance.

Rabia Koda

Rabia grew up listening to Jazz and Rock 'n Roll music and was excited to discover Rock 'n Roll dancing in Amsterdam in 2016. Eventually, she discovered Collegiate Shag and Lindy Hop. After only one workshop of Collegiate Shag, she was completely obsessed with this dance and would eagerly wait for fast songs at Lindy socials. Now, she combines her love for traveling and dancing and attends many Shag festivals in Europe. In classes, Rabia focuses on establishing a good connection with your partner and finds it important to goof around with the music!
