About the teachers

Sven Van houcke

Sven Van houcke

Sven Van houcke

Sven made his first dance moves as a teenager with Slow waltz, quickstep, jive, disco swing.As a young adult, he stopped dancing because judo, paragliding, canyoning and taking care of his family took up all of his free time. But blood is thicker than water: a few years ago, he again felt dancing butterflies in his stomach. Together with his partner Elke he discovered the pleasures of Lindy Hop and attended several schools to improve his skills. Nowadays not a single day passes without him being busy with Lindy Hop. The social dance floor is his habitat. Sven likes nothing better than passing his passion for Lindy Hop to others.

A lover of Satchmo (Louis Armstrong) and Nat King Cole since childhood, it was the swingin’ tunes that drew Earanee to her first Lindy Hop class in her hometown of Adelaide, Australia. Bitten by the jitterbug, Earanee soon began following her love of swing dance around the globe, and has since taught and competed across Australia, Europe and the US.

Geneviève Vermylen

Geneviève Vermylen

Geneviève Vermylen

Geneviève Vermylen is one of the founders of Apollo Swing who started in 1996 and is the owner of Apollo Hop.
It is the passion of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s which naturally put Lindy Hop on her path. She discovered the Lindy Hop at Herrang Dance Camp and has been trained and inspired abroad by top international teachers. Her goal was to see a full dancefloor of swing dancers from all ages having fun on Swing Bands in Belgium; this goal has been reached in more ways than one as the virus of Lindy is amongst us! Geneviève is head of the organization of the International workshop « Crazy Swing Camp» since 2001 where they host the best TOP dancers in the world.

Nick Baeten

Nick Baeten

Nick Baeten

In a way Nick started dancing as an escape from daily life, where he was working as a youth counselor and graduating creative therapy classes. For years Nick wanted to dance LindyHop – and finally gave his life that spin.
Hyperactively he started taking courses, combining schools and going to social dances like a (hyperactive) maniac. Passing through-  projects popped up. Opportunities to train hard, teach, perform and compete came his way.
Learning Lindy Hop should be fun and has not a lot to do with multitude of complicated steps. Do what you feel, be dynamic and keep that flow. Unorthodox and theatrical… what did you expect?
Nick is part of the Brussels performance group Jazz Maniacs.

Pauline van Bogaert

Pauline discovered lindy hop during her studies in Scotland and Germany. Fascinated by the rich culture of the swing era, she fell in love with this energetic dance and its warm community. Back in Belgium, she practices lindy hop on a weekly basis with a main focus on musicality and creativity. By attending international workshops she keeps inspired by the art of body movement, improvisation and connection. Having a good time and spreading the joy of the dance is her ultimate goal.
