Did you know that St. Petersburg in Russia has more bridges than any city in Europe? About 800 bridges! No, this is not just a random fact. Actually one of our main teachers is from that astonishing place and she is as special as the town itself. Evgenia Salakhutdinova is such an energetic and charming lady, she is like the perfect detail for every dance floor.

Through the years, she has been dancing Boogie Woogie, Charleston, Authentic jazz, West Coast Swing and Salsa. In 2002 Lindy Hop strikes again and makes another dancer fall in love with it. This is how it all started for her – enjoying social dancing. Further on she joined a performance group, taking part of different competitions, both in Russia and Europe. With the years of experience, Evgenia started to compete internationally as a part of Finnish National team in 2014 and is currently a Finnish champion in Lindy Hop and Boogie Woogie. Teaches Lindy Hop and Boogie Woogie regularly in several schools in St. Petersburg.
