DecaVitas are the only same sex professional swing dancers in the world and with their dynamic and unique dance style they stand out. They also get attention for colourful clothes, hairdos and for unexpected choreography. They reckon that fellowship between dancers would be more fun and transparent if the community was less conservative.
– It is difficult to stick to a dress code from the 1940s, affirm a yes-culture and still be equal despite gender.
– In our experience the scene in Europe, compared to the US, is boxed in and controlled; everyone expects you to dress in vintage and dance the same style. In the US, we feel there is more variety and tolerance. We want to dance in our way and not as others think we should!
