The weekend will take place November 21st and 22nd, 2015 at the new Gäddede Dance Center.
You! And special guest instructors, Mikaela Hellsten and Anders Sihlberg from Stockholm, and Josefin Andersson from Östersund!
Mikaela Hellsten was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up with a love for music and dancing. Already as a kid she had a special liking for Swing and Rock’n Roll music, with favorite artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Haley. At the age of 13 she discovered Lindy Hop for the first time and since then she has never stopped! Today Mikaela travels all over the world to teach, compete and social dance. When dancing Mikaela often has a big smile on her face, so if she’s at the dance you won’t miss her.
Anders Sihlberg is a swing dance instructor and performer based in Stockholm, Sweden. He has studied dances such as ballet, contemporary and authentic jazz since the age of 10 and developed a passion for body movements and teaching dance. At the age of 13 he fell in love with Lindy Hop and has since then been fortunate to teach and perform around Sweden and Europe. Today he teaches regularly at Chicago Swing Dance Studio and travels around Sweden, spreading his passion for dancing to the Swedish youth.
Josefin Andersson grew up in the woods of Värmland, Sweden, and early in her life discovered the charm and energy of the old dance clips from 1940s movies or documentaries. She has always loved music and dancing, but as quite a late bloomer it wasn´t until she was 33 years old however that she started to dance lindy hop. This she has never regretted! She now lives in Östersund and dances as much as she can with her friends at the Östersund and Gäddede dance scenes!
& Calle Johansson … everyone’s friend, dancer, singer, and guitar player extraordinaire welcomes you to Gäddede!
