Lindy Hop

Solo

Elise started dancing when she was five. She learnt several dances like modern’Jazz and funk before settling for couple dances. She first fell in love with lindy hop because of the joy and craziness that it brought her. Rija discovered ballroom dancing when he was fifteen and hasn’t stopped dancing ever since. He has since then taught in several cities in France and he is a major actor of the lindy hop scene in Paris. They now teach at many festivals in France and also abroad (Berlin, Poland, Italy …).

When dancing, they have this special connection switching energies, from release to accelerations. They will do their best to pass on musicality, groove and improvisation in order for you to have a blast on the social dance floor.

Valentina danced almost her all life. Starting at 4 years old with ballet, she discovered the swing world when she was 17. Now she’s rocking – sorrry swinging – on the dancefloor. Clément has been dancing for seven years swing and is the founder of Swing Base in Berlin. His focus is to find a balance between the origins of Lindy Hop and the creation of new movements to make his own dance!

Gustav Jakobsson: During his first contact with the dance in Herräng he was fortunate enough to have a class with Frankie Manning. He fell in love with Lindy Hop and since then, he has been dedicating a lot of time to learn more about this amazing dance. Now a full time dancer and teacher in Barcelona his teaching is focused on rhythm and flow. Gustav is constantly working to improve his movement by practising Solo Jazz movement as well as Lindy Hop.

Laia Puig: Starting to take Lindy Hop lessons at the age of 19. Now she is a full time dancer and teacher in Barcelona, she is focusing her teaching on followers to have a strong rhythm and to actively take part in the dance. She constantly strives to improve her dancing and movement by working on her solo jazz dancing as much as her Lindy Hop. She tries to connect fun, rhythm and silliness in her dancing.
