Christina Loukaki

Christina Loukaki was born in the island of Crete in Greece and she studied English Philology and Literature at the Aristotle university of Thessaloniki. She had her first experience with dance in the age of 4. She started with rhythmic gymnastics and a year later with Cretan folk dances that she later taught at the age of 15! She was a professional dancer for almost nine years. Later she danced Latin Ballroom dances and Salsa participating in seminars abroad and then she had classes in Argentine Tango. In 2007 she started Lindy Hop because "it was fun" but later she fell completely in love with the energy and the musicality of the dance.

Since that time, she is a fanatic lindy hopper! Her training started as a student of a Swiss lindyhopper at "Lindy Hop Greece" and later continued in seminars and classes abroad, by highly recognized teachers. She is teaching, choreographing and dancing for Lindy Hop Greece in different cities around Greece and in Europe. She teaching regularly every year in Switzerland as a guest teacher or in festivals along with her dance partner Alex Marinis. She is a part of the organisation team of "Swing 'n' Swim" in Greece. Her work has been featured in different venues in Greece and on CNN! An amazing moment in her life was when "Lindy Hop Greece" was invited by Count Basie Orchestra to dance with them at the Megaron Concert Hall in Thessaloniki, Greece. She loved exploring swing music and she is playing the best tunes with the nickname "Louki Louk"!

She worked with kids in Summer Camps for 3 years where she used Experiential Learning as a method. She is experienced with kids and youngsters.
