Chantal and Robert (Lindy Hop)
Chantal and Robert dance the Lindy Hop since 1999. They get their inspiration from regular visits to the United States. There they learned that next to attending workshops the best way to advance in Lindy Hop is to social dance with as many different people as possible. In their classes they try to stay as close as possible to the laws that govern the social dance floor. They focus on simple moves in a number of variations. By mixing them up people can work on their lead and follow skills. Chantal and Robert also like to work with their students on musicality. They believe that music is the main driving power for all interesting moves.
Chantal and Robert started teaching in 2002. They gradually built a small but steady Lindy scene in their home town Eindhoven, the Netherlands. They have taught at Lindy Hop workshops in the Netherlands, Belgium, Lanzarote and Germany. For one of these workshops they have been announced as the Lindy hop Think Tank. They are still wondering why.
Frederique and Henri (Lindy Hop)
Frederique and Henri have been dancing Lindy Hop for many years and are quite passionate about it. They attended many (international) workshops and events to become the dancers they are today. When they were asked in November 2016 to start teaching Lindy Hop to grow the Eindhoven scene, they did not hesitate for a moment. Expect some happy and friendly instruction based on musicality and technique.
Dorrie and Hans (Balboa)
Dorrie and Hans have been dancing almost all their lives. After 12 years of Salsa dancing they discovered Lindy Hop in 2005. Since then they have been dancing Lindy Hop and even started teaching in 2010. Since 2008 a new dance was added to the mix: Balboa. As a result they have been visiting numerous Balboa workshops all over the world not only to improve their dancing and teaching but also to meet people. They are teaching Balboa since 2013. Their classes can be characterized as fun, a lot of student-teacher interaction and focus on technique.
