Elze Visnevskyte comes from a vibrant dance scene in Vilnius, Lithuania. Since she was a kid Elze has been exploring a variety of dances - from old Renaissance to traditional folk dances. She has also spent a lot of time acting in the theatre so she takes a part of it to her dancing and improvisation. Dance for her is much more than leading and following, it is essentially a conversation with a partner and with the music. She values creativity and playfulness and spreads it to her students. You can recognize Elze from her contagious energy and loud laugh.
Elze has been traveling and teaching Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz in various festivals and workshops abroad as well as growing her local dance community where she is a part of Hoppers’ dance studio team. She is also working in bringing Lindy Hop to the theatre, her most recent project is a contemporary Lindy Hop show “Partners”.
