Vlady “Bombeto” & Beny

Vlady is a one of the first boogie dancers in Bulgaria. Initially, he started with ballroom dances at the age of 7, but found  his passion in Boogie Woogie. Shortly  after, he made his own club and started spreading boogie in his country, gradually making it part of bulgarian life. Flying Steps Swing Dances organised 2 World cups in Bulgaria. Thanks to Vlady, now we have a strong community of high level boogie dancers.  He started competing in 2012 and until now, he is part of the only Bulgarian couple who went to a World Championship, and were invited to the World Sports Games. In the years to come, fate encountered Vlady with several short term partners. In 2015 he found Beny and they start dancing  together.

Beny loves dancing and sports in general . In 2014 she first came across with Boogie Woogie. She instantly fell in love with the joyful and energetic dance. Only for one year she became one of the top dancers in Bulgaria, spending a lot of time in training and getting better. It wasn’t long before she started dancing and competing with Vlady. Good dance technique, soft frame and ”feeling” the partner are essential for Beny. She is the girl, who can follow everything! At parties you can see her constantly dancing and having fun with  everyone. 

Now Vlady and Beny are teaching together and putting their hearts into training high quality dance couples, growing the boogie community. They also started judging together and managed to adapt the WRRC rules for Bulgarian competitions. Some of their couples have already reached the top 3 places on several camps, and this is only the beginning! The everyday experience with their students so far allows them to predict and fix any problems. In class they are a genuinely amusing people, as well as accurate and detailed in their explanations. There main goal is to create good leaders and good followers, and teach them how to have fun on the dance floor.
