Tobias Short

Tobias started dancing Blues in 2010. The first Blues Baby Blues festival (organised by Pippa) provided a full exposure to blues in a way he had never experienced before. Tobias says he “felt part of a secret club and it was wonderful”. He’s been hooked ever since. Tobias now teaches Lindy Hop regularly with Pippa, as well as teaching blues workshops and taster classes at Blues Baby Blues. He’s competed and won Blues competitions around the UK and dances with the London Blues troupe the Down & Outs. Tobias is passionate about how dance builds communities and friendships. Tobias also teaches Lindy Hop and loves teaching every week at Swing Patrol Kilburn.
