Tony Jackson & Moe Sakan

 

TONY JACKSON. When Tony discovered swing dancing just over five years ago, he found a way to indulge his love for rhythm and the music and to be creative in a way which he never thought possible – he now focuses all of his energy on his dancing and teaching. He is based in London, England and teaches regularly with Sharon Davis for her school, JazzMAD, but also for a number of the other different schools in the city, as well as internationally with his partner Irene Ragusini. He and Irene are both successful competitors, having competed and placed in some well respected competitions. They have a very special love for social dancing. They are highly thought of, and are quickly being recognised amongst a new generation of teachers, having most recently been invited to teach at the most prestigious and historical event, Herrang Dance Camp, in 2015. As a teacher, Tony hopes to inspire others by sharing ideas for rhythmic clarity and creativity, which allow dancers to connect to their partner, to the music and to really express themselves.
