“I love dancing! Merging with the music I feel happy and complete! As a young adult, I fall in love with Lindy Hop. With the time, I was gathering more and more knowledge about the Swing era. The more knowledge I got the more fascinated I got for that time and its people. I love the uniqueness of the dance and the genius of the music. While improving my dance, I try to figure out how people danced and felt at the golden years of the Savoy ballroom. What was special about this time?
I very much enjoy teaching Lindy Hop. In my classes, I try to include all aspect of the dance going from musicality and rhythms over authentic figures and small routines. For me, Lindy Hop is more than a dance, it is a way to connect to yourself, to feel your body and the body of your partner while relaxing your brain. My goal for teaching is to let dancers experience the joy I feel when I am dancing. Dancing and teaching gives me a steady good feeling in my everyday live. Thanks to all the dancers who make this possible!!”
