Dáire Mac An Bháird

Dáire likes his music like he likes his whiskey; aged and mellow.
He was born under a bad sign in Holland and has both lived, taught and DJed blues all over Europe. A mover and shaker in more ways than one, he is one of the founders of blues in Delft, Holland and co-organises Crash! The Delft Blues Festival.
He has boundless enthusiasm for teaching, and is always researching and expanding his knowledge of blues music and dance, both on and off the floor.
He wants to see you get into your dancing body, be present with your partner, and find your individual expression of the music.

Rachel Cassandra

Rachel Cassandra got her first taste of blues dancing as it started to infiltrate lindy hop events in 2007 and 2008.
Early classes with Mike Leggett, Dave Madison, and Tina Davis whetted her appetite, but it wasn't till 2011 that she dived in and started traveling all over the USA. Pretty soon she was going to multiple blues-exclusive events a year, taking classes from the best teachers in the States.
Rachel has had an unusual dance journey, from starting with Hungarian folk dances at age 17 to becoming the 2011 Moroccan salsa champion to spending three years traveling nonstop to teach kizomba across the US, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Australia.
In February 2017 she settled down in Stuttgart to teach blues for BluesKitchen Stuttgart.
