Tina Rizza hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She saw Lindy Hop for the first time in 2004 and was captivated by this exciting dance. In 2008 this dance won her over and little by little, other forms of Vintage dances like Charleston, Authentic Jazz and Tap found a way into her life as well. Tina loves the spontaneous nature of Lindy Hop that fits perfectly with her passionate and fun personality.
Throughout the years, Tina has taught, performed, competed and judged in Argentina, Brazil and many countries of Europe. Since she cannot sit still, Tina has involved herself in the organizing side of Swing dancing by running, volunteering and working for several events in her home town and in the world. After marrying an Aussie, Tina has chosen Melbourne as her new home. You can find her performing with The Melbourne Rhythm Project and with Echoes of Harlem. When Tina is not dancing, she is working behind the scenes of 1929 Studios!
