About Tony:
People’s favorite Tony Irving is a charismatic TV and radio profile, perhaps best known as chairman of the jury in the Swedes’ best evening entertainment – Let’s Dance.
Dancing and training are a big part of Tony’s life. Tony has been competing in dance for twenty years, but has also taken on the role of judge and commentator, he has run a dance school and still teaches dance, every week, all year round. One of Tony’s great passions is also promoting dance and exercise in the community, as he travels around to teach, lecture and inspire.

About Sophie:
Sofie Ragnar is Swedish champion in 10-dance. She was born and raised at a dance school in Mölndal and her competition career started at the age of 9. She lived many years in Germany during her career and is a trained coach in both Germany and Sweden. Sofie teaches and works daily with dancers, speaks German fluently and loves to do puzzles!

 

read more about the dance styles

Bachata:
The dance comes from the Dominican Republic and can be danced in many different ways depending on the nature of the music, the mood and the chemistry between the dancers. During Tony’s session, it becomes fast, open and playful, with an emphasis on step variations, body movement and feel. A sweaty & lovely dance session!

Tango:
The passionate tango originated in Buenos Aires and Montevideo back in the 19th century. It is a powerful and distinctive dance where the intimate interplay allows for improvisation in every step. In these sessions, we bring out our inner actor, engage our back and neck muscles and stretch our legs – beautifully!

Salsa:
Salsa is a very energetic, exciting, sensual and fun dance with many variations of steps, spins and styles. The music is rich in rhythms, improvisation and energy and is a great source to let loose and have fun! Salsa means sauce and the music/dance is called that because it is a tasty mix with influences from many different dances and rhythms. In salsa you can find influences from many different dances such as tango, samba, swing, hip
hopscotch and ballet.

Cha Cha:
The dance originally comes from Cuba and has since traveled its way around the world. The dance is fast and flirty with fast movements and, as in all Latin dances, a lot of hip movements. There is a clear staccato with sharp transitions between fast and slow steps.

Floor Barre
Sunday morning starts with a great workout together with early riser Tony, even before breakfast. A full-body workout that combines movements from Yoga, Tai Chi and Ballet, where the focus is on simple, effective movements in the joints.

the Inspirational lectures

The inspirational lecture: If I can, we can! 
The lecture is about starting with the Self, in order to benefit the Team! As usual, the lecture is based on experiences from Tony’s own life, which in many ways has been a very exciting journey, which is far from over. We are meant to be in a group and togetherness is something we feel good about. So what is it that you can contribute to your particular group and how do you do it? During the lectures we enjoy English Afternoon Tea together.

Inspirational lecture: A better me – The art of feeling good!
The lecture is about change, about being happy and about daring to change oneself in order to achieve new results. We get to follow Tony’s own life journey with both valleys, peaks and lessons learned. Tony believes that whatever it is that inspires you, it touches you on the inside and connects you to a state where you are more stimulated, productive and purposeful. When you know your purpose, you also feel passion and it is precisely this combination that has become Tony’s own driving force in both life and career. When you feel this way, well then it’s time to make the most of it and feel good. Join the journey!
