Peter Kertz


Peter Kertzner began dancing the Lindy Hop in Los Angeles, where he was born and raised. The scene filled with inspiring dancers and a rich history of swing dancing dating back to the 1930s was enough for him to fall head over heels with swing. He soon began traveling the world to learn the different styles and voices that people were bringing to Lindy Hop today, and that was when he knew he caught the bug!

Today, he lives in Montpellier, France and teaches the dance internationally. Peter’s style is all about fun and connectedness. For him, Lindy Hop is much more than leading and following… it’s about musicality, playfulness, and creativity… it’s dancing… and in the meantime having a freaking great time!

His energy is contagious and his class material is stimulating. Be prepared for laughs, crazy fun, and exciting new moves!
