Alba Mengual

Alba started swing dancing because the swing people were exactly the crowd she was looking for in a new city. With time the dancing on the floor led her to ecstasy and she was really hooked when the jazz music found a big space in her heart. There was no way back! She loves all the different dance styles of the swing era: Lindy Hop, Blues, Balboa and Authentic Jazz, all of which she trains and teaches regularly.

She started teaching locally in Leeds in 2008 and in London for Swing Patrol in 2010. The dancing grew on her and she held the dream to have enough time to train and develop her dancing at the level she wished, to become a full time teacher and an organizer in her home town Madrid. In November 2012 she decided to have the guts to fulfill her dream, quit her job and moved back to Madrid, where she opened the swing school 'Big Mama Swing', bringing international top leads to help her with her mission (Kenny Nelson, Shorty George and finally Gastón Fernández, her current dance partner). This new step in her life has led to her being asked to teach internationally with increasing frequency at events, teaching Lindy Hop, Blues and Balboa.

She is eager to share her passion for dancing with everybody!
