Doesn’t matter if you’re not a big fan of dancing. It is always fun to watch Sondre Olsen-Bye and Tanya Georgiievska when they take to the dance floor for one of their Boogie Woogie performances.

Now the dance isn’t always done to the music of the same name.

More often than not, dancers choose upbeat rock and roll songs for their number.

It looks easy but it really is not.

Sondre and Tanya have been at it together since 2015, while the dance goes all the way back to the mid fifties.

It was originally inspired by American Rock ‘n’ Roll and Lindy Hop dancing of the era, but soon found a bit of European flavor and personality.

Boogie Woogie is a dance meant to be playful.

Couples can improvise with medium or slightly fast paced music, with footwork so fun to watch it leaves you shaking your head.

It is usually a social dance but is a favorite in competitions.

The couple’s smiles are as bright and colorful as their outfits.

Sondre and Tanya are such amazing dancers, and you can tell that they just love to dance.

It may be a competition or a show but to these two, it’s just another day to have fun and dance.

To the tune of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Travelin’ Band”, the talented couple shuffle, twirl and execute a variety of moves not normally seen on any dance floor.

A fan in the comments section loved it so much he said,

“Superb! The one & only Sondre and Tanya always give it their all to entertain/thrill those watching by creating & publishing improv & well crafted choreographed dance routines that quite brilliantly match up perfectly to the music chosen & are impeccably timed to coordinate each other’s executed movements in a smooth as silk like manner, while delivering rock solid five (5) star performances start to finish. For Sondre & Tanya, it is much more than just dancing.”
