About the teachers

Aisha Vits

Aïsha was instantly taken by the swinging ‘50 and ’60 in all their aspects: music, fashion, furniture. She started collecting LP’s of Billie Holiday, Chuck Berry, Jimmie Lunceford, Miles Davis and other such jazzy icons. She started sewing her own ’50 style clothes from very early on. Lindy Hop started being on her radar and after some hesitation she finally registered in September 2016. Intensive parties and workshops convinced her that her enthusiasm for Lindy Hop had to be further conveyed. If it makes her happy, it will make everyone else happy.
