Ana Umnova is a full time Lindy Hop teacher, performer and choreographer based in Vilnius. She started dancing at the age of 16. Since the very first Lindy Hop class, Ana realised that she wants to become a teacher. After attending as many Lindy Hop classes and events as possible, she began teaching Lindy Hop and Vernacular Jazz at Lindyhop.lt club. It inspired her to take dancing even more serious, so she began studying The Education of Dance in university, where she got pedagogical knowledge and also tried various dance styles, such as ballet, contemporary, ballroom, folk and hystorical dances. This experience helped to discover her personal elegant dance style combining authenticity of vernacular jazz dances. Ana also often travels abroad to teach, learn, perform or compete with her partner Tadas Vasiliauskas.
