SONDRE OLSEN-BYE

Our partnership


... started at SwingAout Festival 2015. Since then we have been competing, teaching and performing boogie woogie all around Europe and outside it. With great joy we travel to spread the love for swing dancing in general and boogie woogie in particular. As a result, we also started our own dance event called Boogie Feet's Festival in 2016 in Sondre's hometown Dombås, Norway for inspiring and bringing up swing dancers from many different countries. 


In 2016-2019 while representing Norway in international boogie woogie competitions we got a few titles in the category Main Class. They are:

World Champions 2017, 2019

Vice World Champions 2018

European Champions 2018, 2019

Nordic Champions 2017, 2018

Norwegian Champions 2017, 2018 and 2019

Two times SAP Final World Cup winners

10 World Cup wins all over the world including USA and Russia. 


Our plan is to keep on competing, performing, teaching and sharing the dance we love in any possible way!
