Maxence & Virginie (FRANCE)

Virginie Grondin is one of the best West Coast Swing dancers in Europe right now, and she is progressively proving herself in the United States. In particular, she won the UK Open and the Midland Swing Open in 2010. She placed in the Champions division at three of the biggest american events.
Virginie began her dance training when she was only five years old. Beginning with the rock’n'roll and the Boogie, she moved to individual dances, like modern jazz, classical and contemporary dance. She studied in the National Superior Dance Conservatory and succeeded in the technical final examination. She discovered West Coast Swing in 2007 and since, she’s growing very quickly in the community, thanks to her previous training and her natural talent for this dance.

Maxence Martin, a former Champion and Black belt in Judo, he started his career in dancing with Lindy Hop. He soon he fell in love with WCS and started his training in 2007 alongside the Best dancers in California. In less than a year he became a contestant in the “Champions” category in the USA. Maxence is now the only French dancer to have won the title of Champion in West Coast Swing..
He recently won the Best International Award at the 2011 Westie Awards Nominations. He performed his two first routines at the US Open, partnering with the famous Kelese Key (Texas). Maxence is an exceptional dancer and one of the most touching and appreciated of his generation.

John & Alyssa (Canada/USA)

John Kirkconnell and Alyssa Marie Glanville are a dynamic, exciting partnership! They became partners five years ago and have taught all over the world. John started dancing West Coast Swing over 14 years ago and quickly became one of Canada’s best dancers and instructors. All his students love his playful personality and the connection he makes with the music.

Alyssa started West Coast Swing about 9 years ago, and immediately fell in love with the dance, especially the creative aspect drawn from other dances. She uses her experience in Lindyhop, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Jazz, and Ballet to enhance her West Coast Swing. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area has also given her many opportunities to teach and grow in her own dance.

Both John and Alyssa compete on the Swing Circuit in the Champions division. Together they have traveled around North America, Europe and Asia spreading their personal love for Swing. Their partnership emphasizes musicality and connection.
