Egle Regelskis

Lithuania

We are so excited about Egle Joining our teachers team! Egle Regelskis is a passionate international swing dancer, teacher, and performer from Vilnius, Lithuania, teaching and helping her students to emerge. Dancing was always in her blood. She first tried Ballroom and Folk dances, but it was when she found the family of Swing dances in 2004 that she knew she had found what she was looking for!

Egle believes that dancing is something that helps people conquer their fears and truly connects them to who they are. The way we are is the way we dance, magic happens when we step out of our comfort zone thereby accepting ourselves with all our weaknesses and strengths. She also believes that if one can walk one can dance, everything else depends on passion and willingness to work.
