Levels

Lindy Hop advanced

Your life is a mix of parties, classes and workshops. You are a confident leader and follower and you can improvise to fast music. Your own dance style and personality shine through which makes the difference for a more personal musicality and mood expression.
You master the different skills needed in Lindy Hop in either slow or fast tempos.

Lindy Hop beginner-intermediate

You’ve learned most of the basic steps like charleston, triple steps, groove walks, on basic patterns like send-out, tuck-turn, change places, circle. You know how to do them but you are not always confident. You would like to master them and learn some new rythmical variations.

Lindy Hop intermediate

You’ve mastered the basic charleston, triple steps, groove walks, kick steps on basic patterns like send-out, tuck-turn, change places, circle, and know the difference between dancing in a 6 and an 8 count. You are hungry for more.

Thomas Blacharz

Thomas BLACHARZ is a world-renowned master and champion in the field of swing dances (Lindy Hop, Jazz Dance). A true globetrotter, for 15 years he traveled the world to teach and perform his art through the biggest jazz and swing festivals (Montreal Jazz Festival, Tanjazz, Chatel Guyon, Laroquebrou, Hong Kong Fringe Festival, etc.) Thomas is also a multi-disciplinary choreographer (Caravan Palace) appreciated for his ability to adapt, improvise and create but also for his musical culture which he holds from his past as artistic director and DJ at the Apollo Jazz Café (Montpellier-France ). For the past 3 years, Thomas has been pursuing his Swing, Jazz, Funk & Hip Hop influences through the "Camping" show of the Quebec Multi-disciplinary circus company "Théâtre à Tempo" in Germany (GOP) and Quebec (Diamant) but also by mainly coaching the most ambitious teachers and competitors of the current Swing scene through his "Swing Master Class" project. Thomas likes to come and infuse his contagious enthusiasm, his expertise, his pedagogy, his spirit and his passion: an invaluable heritage that he owes directly to his legends, mentors, friends who are/were: Chazz Young, Sonny Allen (1958 Harvest Moon Ball Champion), Chester Whitmore, Sugar Sullivan (Spirit Moves documentary), The late Frankie Manning (Ambassador of swing), Norma Miller (The queen of swing) & the unforgettable Dawn Hampton.

Carole Martins

Carole has been passionate about dance and swing music from her young age, a natural attraction that quickly pushes her to take the road to Boogie Woogie competitions in France and Europe. It was only in 2014 that she discovered Lindy Hop in search of novelty and inspiration. Her favorite thing: " The social Dance", to connect, share, follow, build in pairs, give, learn from each other, exchange and enjoy this music that she adores. Very quickly, this interest in couple dance also allowed her to realize the importance and the positive impact of solo danse. A unique opportunity to enrich your dance with a better freedom of interpretation, a new vocabulary and a connection to the origins of this dance: the Jazz Steps and more particularly to have fun with simple or complex rhythms. In 2016, Carole began to teach, taken by the desire to share her passion while continuing to train as a dancer and as a teacher. Carole is an organic and passionate dancer who won't leave you indifferent and might even inspire you by watching her dance.
