About the teachers

Astrid Akay

Astrid Akay

Astrid Akay

Ever since she was a child, Astrid has been very passionate about dancing. Growing up in a jazzy environment, as soon as she heard music, she was dancing. When she first set foot in a party, she immediately fell in love with lindy hop. Because of her time at the conservatory studying acting, she learned how to let herself go. Astrid is synonymous with lots of energy and happiness, which is hard to miss when you see her dance to jazz. She will most definitely motivate you to dance the lindy hop.

Sander Costermans

Sander Costermans

Sander Costermans

Ever since Sander was a teenager, he was very interested in jazz and the style from the swing era. He started dancing because he just couldn’t sit still when listening to music. He’s part of the Jazz Maniacs and the Old Soulz performance crews in Brussels, which have given him the opportunity to perform at events in the country and abroad. The authentic style is what he tries to recreate, but he likes to put in his own character as well. His goal in teaching people lindy hop, is to enable them to dance comfortably with anyone they happen to meet, and enjoy themselves when they go out dancing.
