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.
Maarten Van Dijck
Maarten started to dance lindy hop in 2012. He was captivated by the endless possibilities and freedom of the dance as well as by the beauty of swing jazz music. Above all he loved the social dancing in Antwerp and Belgium and the great atmosphere among the lindy hop dancers. He attended different weekly classes and danced at every possible opportunity. Maarten searches for more variation, musicality and fun during the classes at international dance festivals. He is also passionate about learning to dance the blues. Together with the Antwerp Lindy Hoppers he organizes lindy hop parties and swing jazz concerts for all the dancers in Antwerp.
This workshop is meant for those who are absolutely new to lindy hop and are about to learn their first steps and for those who want to join our weekly classes afterwards. No previous dance experience at all is necessary.You learn in 6 hours basic moves in triple steps and groove walk on basic patterns like the send out, tuck turn, change place, bring back, circle and will basicly learn how to lead or follow those different patterns. We will use 6 counts and 8 counts. Our warm up will have nice charleston and kick moves as well. After this workshop you will be able to dance Lindy Hop at social dances and have fun!
