Maxime & Torri

Maxime & Torri Zzaoui are from Lyon, France.  They married last year and met through their love of West Coast Swing dancing.

Torri began dancing when she was 3 years old in California, USA. She has studied other dances, but has always been a part of the West Coast Swing community; she has won the Young America/Young Adult divisions a total of 6 times at the US Open. Torri was the first and only person to win both the Classic and Showcase division in the same year at the 2010 US Open, and continued to win the Showcase division for the next 4 years.

Maxime started dancing at the age of 5 in Lyon, France. He studied contemporary at the Conservatory for 6 years before starting his career in the West Coast Swing community. He is now one of the top male professionals, and was the first European to place in the top 5 of the Classic division at the US Open 2012.

Together they travel the world teaching, judging and performing.  They also host West in Lyon and are the organisers of the Euro Swing 16 tour.
