​Hello everybody, my name is Frank Wiessner, I'm from Frankfurt am Main, Germany and I live in the wonderful Japanese city Fukuoka. I enjoy swing dance since fourteen years and teach for ten years in Japan, first two years in Kagoshima and now in Fukuoka-City. We teach Charleston and Lindy Hop.

What’s Swing Dance?

Charleston & Lindy Hop are American Swing Dances from the 1920ties to 1940ties. The focus is on the fun of rhythm and harmony, creativity, exchanging ideas and the interpretation of the music. These dances are sportive and give many space for funny and silly individual stylings.
