Móni (as. Minky) discovered the joy of jazz music at the age of 13. It is this joy that she likes to pass on on the fully crowded dancefloors.
When not dancing, Móni likes watching dancers and getting inspired by them. She draws a lot from what Duke Ellington once said: "Jazz is the measure of freedom".
As a founder of Pepita Móni has entartained the guests of Pepita Parties from the beginning. Her repertoire includes almost everything from early to contemporary jazz. She is fond of classic evergreens and likes to discover new tunes as well. Pick up her enthusiasm and vibe, you won't regret it!
Kriszta’s love affair with swing dance and swing music started in 2014. She has always been fond of music... the rhythm, the feelings and the very message it carries. She started to dig into the different periods of jazz already as a beginner dancer. Beside fizzy big band songs and classics she likes to play records from the modern jazz era as well as tunes originally played on the gramophone. For Kriszta the danceroom is a playground, the music is the toy to play with and the DJ is the gamemaster. Kriszta’s greatest joy is to see as the dancers get enchanted by the music she plays.
