From Rome, Italy, Leonardo started his journey as a dancer at the age of 13 diving into Hip Hop and its related styles, where he performed, trained and competed nationally. After discovering Lindy Hop at a music and cultural festival in Rome, he hasn’t turned back since and his passion and love for the dance has only continued to grow. Apart from his strong focus and studies in Lindy Hop, he also teaches Blues, Authentic Jazz and St Louis Shag and has recently discovered his love for Tap Dance. As he loves to take inspiration and ideas from as many places as possible, he has also touched on Balboa, Contemporary, Modern Dance and Ballet.
Leonardo believes that taking knowledge from various styles of dance allows for stronger understanding and awareness of body movement and therefore a better understanding and connection with the other person during couple dance.
Leonardo has been travelling, performing, competing & attending dance classes from the best international Swing Dancers around the world developing his own dynamic style and personality.
