Valentine swing is all about socializing, creating new friendships, partnerships ;-) and meeting old and new friends, all in the name of LOVE and FRIENDSHIP.
That is also why all of our pros are known for their social dancing and dancing with everyone!
At Valentine Swing we try to encourage new meetings. That is why we have created the Valentine Swing speed dating on friday evenings. The concept, introduced in 2022, quickly became a hugh success and created a lot of buzz! The idea with out speed dating is that you get to dance with everyone at the event, no matter their background, level or if they are pros or not. This way you get to know new people and it will definitly be easier to invite them to dance later on at the socials!
We aim to have great DJ:s at Valentine swing, DJ:s that understand the importance of creating a great vibe on the dance floor!

Topi began DJing at local parties mostly by an accident. But after starting, it’s been “all in”.
Today he is DJing weekly at local parties, and is an integral part of most events in Finland. Topi has DJ:ed at many of the biggest European events
Topi finds it important to balance accessible music that is fun to dance to regardless of dance experience, while still making it layered and interesting enough for the high-level dancers. Regardless of the time and vibe, you will always hear a large variety of music from swingy jazz and blues to body moving contemporary and pure and simple acoustic songs, be it one of the newest hits or an old classic.
Topi is all about the community and will always do his best to make every event he attends or DJs the best it can possibly be, always willing to help and brings with him the most energizing positive vibe.
Koichi is a US-based DJ who’s been DJing since 2012. He still remembers, after doing his first set in July 2012, that he probably wouldn’t DJ again. After a few more “I will prob not DJ again” thoughts, his thoughts switched to “Oh, I want to DJ more…alone…for the whole set.”
When he realized he wanted to DJ more and seemed to be reasonable at it, he started to reach out to events to guest DJ when an event was able to have him. Those opportunities eventually lead to being hired at events like MADjam, Wild Wild Westie, and Swingtacular, to name a few.
For events he works at, people have come to expect him to close the ballroom one of the nights, which often ends up being Saturday night. Being basically a newbie at non-US events, however, he is super excited and is looking forward to bringing his musical influence to Valentine Swing!
