Coming from “la Bella Italia”, Marco (known as ‘The Smiley Man’) stumbled across swing dancing five years ago and has been hooked ever since. To him, swing is synonymous with joy and play, he is obsessed with the inspiring energy and crazy rhythms. Marco tries to share his passion about the community, spirit and magic of swing dance, through his teaching and performing.
What Marco finds particularly incredible is that beyond the body and enjoyable exercise, dance has the curative power to heal our minds, hearts and souls. He thinks Lindy Hop is a bizarre and surprising world filled with smiles, music, friends, travel and great pleasure and a world where he doesn’t have to take himself seriously.
Marco is an industrial engineer and loves to chase Pokémon when he’s not swinging-out on the dance floor, (his motto is ‘if in doubt, SWING OUUUUTTTT!’)
Marco proudly heads up Crouch End with the energetic and equally smiley Hannah Taylor and is also part of the team at Boogaloo Bounce.
