Markus Koch & Bärbl Kaufer
2017 marks the 26th year of their successful dance partnership. With their knowledge, energy, commitment, and lifelong passion for the Swing dances Marcus and Bärbl have contributed enormously to the Swing dance community. Their teaching and performances have been influencing many dancers worldwide.
Before the time of DVDs and YouTube their instructional VHS videos were one of the first world-wide sources to learn the various styles of Swing dancing. In all those years they have continuously grown the community and introduced many new international talents through the events they have created.
Since December 2011 they have operated their own dance studio in the city center of Munich—the Vintage Club. Together with their team of internationally respected teachers they offer regular classes, workshops and dance parties.
