Hugo Miquez & Stacy Kay (USA)
Hugo Miguez & Stacy Kay are award winning dancers based out of Florida (USA). They have been dancing professionally for over 10 years in many different styles but are best known for West Coast Swing.
They believe the best dances happen when we hold nothing back and leave our hearts on the dance floor. As WCS champions, they know the importance of not only technique but the heart that inspired the movement. They are known to teach dance that inspires the body and encouraged the mind. There is nothing better than a community of inspired confident dancers, who are willing to work hard to achieve their dance goals. Their workshops motivate people to push past every excuse in thier mind, you can accomplish more than you ever thought possible!
They teach, perform, judge, and choreograph internationally and we are VERY excited to welcome them to Baltic Swing 2019.

PJ Turner (USA)
PJ started traveling the Swing Circuit all over the nation competing in Jack and Jills and strictly competitions. He was on a mission for the NASDE tour. In 2012, he was awarded the NASDE tour Champion. Along the way he also received several Social Dance awards including the Prestigious Bob Preiss Social Dance Award from Swing Diego, Boogie by the Bay and River City Swing. In 2013 PJ partnered with Tashina Beckmann King. Dancing together, they put 6 routines on the floor including Feel Again, Counting Stars, Demons, Livin on a Prayer, Let the Good Times Roll and Helium. They were US Open finalists and performed in an Off-Broadway show in New York called Swango. While they were dance partners, they were invited all over the U.S. and internationally to teach, judge and perform.
In 2015, PJ quit his job and commenced dancing professionally full time. It’s a decision he has never regretted. PJ loves dancing and is extremely passionate about teaching and social dancing. Now PJ travels all over the world teaching, judging, performing, competing, and always learning! Despite his rigorous travel schedule, PJ NEVER forgot that the most important thing is family. He has an AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE FAMILY that is his rock and cheers him on.
If you see PJ out at an event, don’t ever hesitate, just ask him to dance. His motto is and will always be: Just make her smile!!!
Alyssa Glanville (USA)
Alyssa Glanville has been dancing since she was 8 years old. She started in Lindyhop and Folk Dancing. While she loved dance, she spent a lot of her youth playing soccer and showing horses competitively. It wasn't until she started ballroom when she was 15 that she was first exposed to West Coast Swing. She immediately fell in love with the dance, especially the creative aspect drawn from other dances.
Since then, Alyssa has trained in Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, Zouk, and Ballet. She uses her knowledge from those dances to enhance her WCS. She just graduated from University in May with a degree in Communications and Business and now is studying to become a Personal Trainer.
Having worked on our Pro Teams in Warsaw Halloween Swing for 2 years, we are pleased to welcome her to different part of Poland in th North!
Browly Adjavon (Fra)
We are delighted to announce that the fabulously talented Browly Adjavon will be joining the Pro Team at Baltic Swing 2020!
Browly has dedicated himself to learning more about West Coast Swing (its basics, the different techniques taught and its evolution) as well as learning how to teach it. More than the theory though, it is about understanding what you do and how you do it, testing whatever you learn or find out on your own during your dance journey. And very quicly he started doing his own researches, questionning everything and being more concentrated on movement and lead and follow skills rather than on the patterns.
Today, making his way in the West Coast Swing community with hard work, perseverance and humility, Browly is not only known for his competition results that brought him to the “All-Star” division and his undeniable social dancing skills. He is also known for his teaching, as a professional whose pedagogy is well appreciated in his workshops or private lessons. He is clear and logical in technique classes and students love how he approaches musical interpretation in the dance. Creating a joyful atmosphere, he not only passes on technique in a simple, efficient way, but also passes on his strong values of respect for partner, and enjoying the dance. Breaking down “complicated concepts” into simple ideas with fun exercises makes it easier for students to communicate in the dance. “Dancing is simply for me another form of communication. You need to understand the words expressed through bodies to create and connect a great conversation”.
