Joris Focquaert comes from Belgium, and is currently living in Berlin, Germany. While he has a background in physical theater (The Commedia School, Copenhagen, 2007), his road evolved towards dancing and more specifically African-American Jazz dances like the Lindy Hop. As a dance instructor, he gives his best, always seeking answers in the roots of Jazz. Learning to play the clarinet and trombone has developed his understanding of Jazz as movement. Founder of Crazy Legs Dance School in Ghent, the city where he honed his skills, he looks forward to seeing what’s there for him around the corner, curious for new projects.
