Giulia Alfeo is a Longboard Dancer whose platform has grown thanks to her funky dance moves and impressive skills. Giulia said she wants to use her platform to ‘accelerate voices that I believe need to be heard and to make people of the Longboard dancing community visible, that might otherwise be unseen. My goal is to normalize talking about political subjects and to create an even more inclusive and diverse community.’

Giulia shared with us that for her ‘dance is a form of escape from the everyday world. The music I’m listening to brings me into a flow that makes me travel to other places.’ Although Giulia is content dancing solo and getting lost in a music filled world, she has also made some friends who share a love of the activity. ‘Since the Longboard Dancing community is a very young and small one, it is easy to make connections with people from all over the planet. I am fortunate to have friends spread globally whilst we stay connected via social media, I hope I can visit them in their countries and discover the world on my longboard.’

We asked Giulia about her favourite song to dance to at the moment, and understandably she couldn’t pick just one, quoting Slide by H.E.R, Diamonds by Sam Smith and Triste, Louca ou Má by Francisco, el Hombre as some of her go to’s – thanks for the recommendations, we’ll be adding those to our playlists too 😉.

Giulia is also an instructor, hosting longboarding camps across Europe. In a bid to grab a few tips ourselves we spoke to her about the first steps to learn for newbies, ‘I start with the basics on how to push properly, break and carve. Once these basics are safe, I continue with a dancing step like the cross step.’ Follow Guilia on her Insta for endless dancing inspo and playlist that make you want to move!
