MANUEL IGNACIO BICAIN
Manuel started to dance Swing in 2003. When he got into the traditional jazz and improvisation world, he found the prefect way to express himself and to share his art with people.
He studied with local teachers and took clases in Europe with the best dancers of the world. He combined his training with martial arts, contact improvisation, theater and circus for several years. He has also studied tap and body percussion, disciplines that he’s still practicing.
He is the organizer of Swingin’ Festival (a Lindy Hop and Tap event), Swing Break Camp, and Campeonato Porteño de Swing (the first swing championships in Southamerica). Currently, he organizes swing parties and he is the producer of the jazz band Brazofuerte All Stars.
Manu participated in several shows as a swing dancer, and won different prizes in competitions. He teaches Lindy Hop, involving not just his heart and dance knowledge in each class, but also modern educational techniques to transmit what each student needs.
