    Night Stay, Hostel & hosting

    Best places to check for hostels or accommodation are Dresden-Neustadt, or nearby the center.

    We also recommend to search with AirBnB or Couchsurfing. Alternatively you should try to check “Jugendherbergen, Ferienwohnungen, Pension or Hostels.

    Names of Hostels: Lollies Homestay, Mondpalast, Louise, Mescalero, Kangaroo Stop, LaLeLu, etc. …
    Please check on your own: uebernachtung-in-dresden-neustadt.de
    We had a good experience with researching at hostelworld.com.

    For hosting requests please note, that we cannot promise to organize your hosting. We will do our best, but it has worked out great so far to start looking at the following platforms yourself:


    Though from our own experience it is not easy finding a host, if you have no private connection to the dance community. Once you got to know the dancers in person it is much easier. Still you should try, or search for couch surfing and airbnb.

2017 Fedor Alina Weekend_800n

  • Alina Sokulska originally from Kyiv (Ukraine), based worldwide. Alina has been dancing since she remembers herself, from the very early age. Having a rigorous training in a professional dance performance company Show-ballet A6 (Kyiv) since 8, Alina has been experimenting on and learning all possible dances. She met social dance at 17 and since then jazz, swing, lindy-hop, tap, blues, be-bop, UK Jazz, latin dance, traditional African dance, were the issues that excited her most.

    Her dance experience met with academic formation in Arts helps Alina to comprehend Jazz Dance, her major passion, as a historical and anthropological phenomenon of the Art of mixed identities. This helps her as a dancer to find new profound approaches to choreography, social dance, improvisation, musicality and a dancing style. Moreover, she has been sharing her experience teaching both solo and couple dances with her partner Fedor Nedotko, lecturing, performing, choreographing and collaborating with jazz bands as well as hosting dance weekends, workshops and festivals in Ukraine, Russia as well as around the world.

    She set up her company Jazz Workshop with Alina Sokulska in 2013, cherishing the concept of dance expression to Jazz Music of any style, elaborating on her own dance language and artistic voice researching rare jazz dance forms of the 20th century through African-American Body Movement.

    Her dance mentors, both met and never met ones are Al Minns, Leon James, Teddy Brown, Jimmy Slyde, Alvin Ailey, Brothers-in-Jazz and Irven Lewis, Chester Whitmore, Gordon Neil, Frankie Martinez, Josette Wiggan, Roxane Butterfly, many others and of course… Music!

    In her art she tries to follow the quotation by Hope Boykin, Ailey dancer:
    Everything should be done with purpose, passion and style. Everything.

Fedor Nedotko was one of the first professional dancers in East European region to promote jazz dance, swing dance, African dance and salsa in the early 2000s. Based in St. Petersburg, Fedor remains one of the most influential instructors in Russia and its neighbor countries. He is a founder of Casa Latina dance club, where he has educated several generations of swing and salsa dancers, applying his fundamental approach of the African rooted nature of these major American social dance styles.

Fedor has started dancing as a ballroom dancer in his native city, Cherepovets, Russia, in 1990s, since 1994 – a member of “Bomond” dance theatre. Since 1998 Fedor has been living and working actively in St. Petersburg, two years after he discovered a world of social dance, traveling abroad and taking classes of such native masters as Frankie Manning, Sugar Sullivan, Dawn Hampton, Steven Mitchell, Lennart Westerlund, Peter Loggins, and many more.

“For me, jazz is not an abstract music, it is, first of all, a dancing mood, a state of emotional excitement. I don’t follow any particular swingdance styles as all of them create unique swingdance world. I consider musicality, comfort, freedom and partnering to be the most important in dancing.”
