Here are the crazy people behind Ottawa's Blues Blast!
Stefan Fuchs - Event Director — Stefan is this year's new event director! From logistics to promo, he makes things happen for Blues Blast! Although he began dancing at the age of 13, Stefan has never felt the level of passion for a dance style as he does for the blues. A few years ago Stefan went into Blues Blast a blues virgin. He was baptised by fire and now has seen the light! Blues is now his favorite style of dance, hands down. He is a self-proclaimed blues dancing junkie!
Claudia Petrilli - Producer — Claudia has a deep love of vintage blues and jazz music, and if you're lucky you've heard her DJ at major Canadian blues and swing events. Claudia has at some point organized every one of Swing Dynamite's large events, and this year she's leveraging her experience to help make Blues Blast the best we've ever had.
Elena Purser - Promotional Coordinator — While new to blues dancing, Elena was instantly hooked. She has thrown herself into the blues scene with abandon and is now using her event planning experience to help make Blues Blast an event to remember.
Byron Alley - Executive Producer — Founder of Swing Dynamite, Byron is passionate about the blues music he grew up on, and bringing inspiring blues dancing to Ottawa is important to him.
