Authentic Jazz is rooted in African and Afro-American dances as well as tapdancing. All you need for it is energy, individuality and the knack for improvisation. Your feet will follow the music in perfect rhythm, an essential aspect of Authentic Jazz Dance. Oldies music as well as Charleston and swing jazz will enable you to give free reign to your movements which could feature in Lindy Hop and will be a bonus for partying.
Helena started dancing at a very early age; she began with Ballet in kindergarten and acquired a real taste for dancing. She took dance courses in different styles. After winning a title in the Belgian Championship (funk/hip-hop) at age fifteen, Helena started teaching dance classes and designing choreography. For ten years she taught in different disciplines (jazz dance, street dance, oriental dance, dance theatre) and always managed to creatively incorporate influences from flamenco, tap dance, body drumming, Bollywood, African dance, capoeira, break dance, tango and contemporary dance.
After leaving dance for a couple of years, Lindy Hop ignited her fire for dancing again. Not only the cheerful way of dancing, but also the complete setting, style and atmosphere from the days of yore make her heart pound.
