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.
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.
It all started with a fifties Fiat 500, since then she lives a life of vintage passion: from clothing to hairstyling, furniture and music. So it wasn’t long until Verdiana discovered the Lindy drug during her work as a vintage hairdresser for Radio Modern. Once she got the bounce in her bones, her life changed completely. You can regularly see her popping up at social dances in Belgium and attending international dance camps and workshops, catching the eyes of the innocent bystanders with her Italian style lindy moves. When it comes to swing dancing, for Verdiana it’s all about having fun and moving your body to the music. Musicality is the key for two individuals to become one on the dance floor.
