He then continued with intensive training in Rock'n'Roll, Boogie Woogie (Crazy Shakers), Jazz Dance (Incognito), Tap, Argentine Tango and lately also Salsa. He visited Herrang Dance Camp the first time in 1992, where the virus Lindy Hop caught him badly. Since then, Lorenz organizes and teaches classes and Workshops in Zurich as well as some major cities in Europe (Paris, Milano, Vienna, Berlin, Munich, Gothenburg, Nancy, Herrang etc.) and overseas (among others at SwingCity Melbourne in 2004), from Beginners to Professionals, took part of Projects at the Opera and the Drama Theater Zurich, at Television and in the film business as Choreographer and Dancer. He also leads and organizes his own Show Dance Company "Hellzapoppin' Disaster". In summer 2001 he made the concept for a new kind of international Festival called "Swing City" and organized as well it in Zurich. Over 30 different Events happened within this festival, concerts, Dance Performances, Movies, public Crash Courses, Workshops, etc. The opening night attracted over 10,000 People. After a successful start, this concept then started to tour the world and so far visited Stockholm in 2002, Harlem (New York) in 2003 and Melbourne 2004. Since 2002 Lorenz is also part of the organization of Herrang Dance Camp. Lorenz is also a well reknown DJ and MC for Swing Parties.

Ursula Ledergerber Zurich, Switzerland
Ursula Ledergerber Demo Video
Ursula finished her professional dance-education in July 2002, including Modern Dance, Jazz Dance, Ballet, Flamenco and more. She has been teaching in Switzerland but also on a international level since several years, mainly Lindy Hop and Tap, as well as stretching and body-control. She will give all the Ladies an excellent example and a lot of new and fresh inspiration in Lindy Hop. She makes part of a younger generation of Swing Dancers and therefore adds a lot of new elements to the Swing Dance. All of this came to her in a very natural way, since she grew up surrounded by music and rhythm by her mother being a professional musician. Maybe that explains her ease in playing around with rhythms as well as her passion today for Music and Dance.
