About the teachers

Morgane Borra

Morgane Borra

Morgane Borra

Coming first from the rock’n’roll world with a father being the lead singer of the Belgian Blues-Rockabilly Band, The Wild Ones; Morgan spent all her life listening to Gospel, Swing, Blues, Rhythm’n’blues, Country, Rockabilly and Rock’n’roll. She grew up as an Old Soul, being always attracted and fascinated by things from the past. But that’s her love for America and most specifically the African American Culture that led her to the video of the Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers dancing in the Hellzapoppin’ movie. It left her in shock. She then promised herself that one day she would dance the Lindy Hop.
And since that day finally arrived, the adventure never stopped, taking multiple classes, workshops here and abroad, training hard and going social dancing quickly became a part of her daily life, always excited to learn some more.
But for Morgan, it is more than just a dance, when the music starts, it’s a call from deep down her soul, it’s a whole experience, It’s lettin’ go, Forget your troubles, just feel the music in your bones and let the magic happens!

Anaelle Dalez

In 2015 she discovered the swing dances in Brussels. She started by learning the Charleston and she immediately attracted by the social dances. She started to take classes and participated in some international workshops during which she met some very inspiring dancers and teachers. Lindy Hop in general is a very inspiring “world” with a whole history, values and of course great music. She keeps on evolving and working on her dancing, with a focus on flow and musicality. Her favourite aspect of the Lindy hop is the social dance: sharing good moments with different people in an inclusive environment. As a teacher, her main goal is to give keys to people to enjoy themselves and to be able to express their own personality while dancing with others.
