Emelie and Rebecka, a.k.a The DecaVitas, are currently based in Stockholm, Sweden. They have been sharing their love of Lindy Hop and their passion for teaching since 2006. Today they make their living out of dancing, teaching workshops across Sweden and abroad and spending about six months every year on the road. Together they are known for their dynamic and unique dance style. As instructors, Emelie and Rebecka strive to teach great technique in a way that is positive, coherent and productive.
