Peter Kertz began dancing the Lindy Hop in Los Angeles, where he was born and raised. The scene filled with inspiring dancers and a rich history of swing dancing dating back to the 1930s was enough for him to fall head over heels with swing. He soon began traveling the world to learn the different styles and voices that people were bringing to Lindy Hop today, and that was when he knew he was addicted to the dance and the amazing community that keeps this dance alive!
Today, while he lives in Montpellier, France, Peter travels to teach and perform Lindy Hop around the world. He sees the dance is a way of speaking the same language, regardless of the different places we come from. For him, the dance has always been a way of bringing people together through joyous expression, and in his teaching and dancing, he hopes to be a part of this rich tradition.
