Lindy Hop

"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"
Duke Ellington / Irving Mills

Dance dance dance

October 2016. By chance I stumble across a post about Lindy Hop on a facebook. Two days later, I took my first lesson. Sometimes you just take a leap into the unknown. Back then, I could not have guessed it would completely change my life. After a few months I attended my first social dances and it quickly got out of hand soon after, dancing every single occasion I could. And watching youtube videos when there was no class, workshop or social to attend. One year later, I did my first little performance at the LiLi Hop weekend in Ghent. Loved it! We performed a shortened version of the Sing Sing Sing routine by Ksenia and Daniil.

You can't buy happiness, but you can learn to dance. Which comes pretty close.
