Davide’s musical adventure begins when he starts playing drums in a band and collaborating with a Genoese folk songwriter. He soon becomes interested in Jazz music and in 2012 he starts taking Lindy Hop lessons and attending workshops with international teachers monthly.
Davide, an all-age English teacher, decides to follow different Lindy Hop teaching courses and to master the historical-cultural context in which Swing culture evolved, honored by invitations to hold lessons on this subject. His "Lindy Talk", a chat about the origins of Swing, accompanied by music and videos, is hosted in Turin, Milan, Florence, Bologna, Naples, Pescara and many other cities.
In 2014 he starts teaching Lindy Hop in Genoa and in November 2015 he joins the ‘Swing Maniacs’ dance school as a teacher, "historical researcher" and as the dance school’s co-director. In the following months he continues to teach, perform and attend the best Swing Camps and teacher courses in Europe, maintaining his training path as a dancer and a teacher.
In the end of 2016 he starts holding workshops outside of Genoa (in Milan, Savona, Pistoia, Bassano del Grappa, Alessandria, Lecce ...).
In March 2017 he founds, together with Valentina, the "Your Swing" Cultural Association, acting as president.
His lessons are a mixture of musicality, history and technique: you will see him wander in the studio with his pad, playing some of the most engaging videos of the Swing Era and getting excited every time a student emphasizes a break in the music!
