Laia & Gustav

Gustav comes from a sports background and had his first contact with Lindy Hop in Herräng. He fell in love with the dance right away and since then, he has been dedicating a lot of time to learn more about this amazing dance.

Now a full time dancer and teacher in Barcelona, his teaching is focused on rhythm and flow. Gustav is constantly working to improve his movement by practicing Solo Jazz movement as well as Lindy Hop. He likes to perform and compete and has been successful at events such as ILHC, ESDC, Lindy Shock and The Snowball. Together with Laia he won 1st place in the Advanced Strictly Division at ILHC 2016, and they were finalists in the All-Star Strictly at ILHC 2017. They are both members of Brothers and Sisters in Rhythm who won the team competition at ILHC 2017.

Laia started dancing at the age of six and and for six years she practiced Ballet, Contemporary and Flamenco daily. When she was 12 years old she started practice and compete in Ballroom dances. At the age of 19 she didn’t want to continue with the ballroom dances and she agreed to go with her parents to a Lindy Hop dance. She loved what she saw at the dance and immediately starting to take Lindy Hop lessons, leaving the Ballroom dancing behind.

Now a full time dancer and teacher in Barcelona, she is focusing her teaching on followers to have a strong rhythm and to actively take part in the dance. She constantly strives to improve her dancing and movement by working on her solo jazz dancing as much as her Lindy Hop. She tries to connect fun, rhythm and silliness in her dancing.

Laia likes to perform and compete both in Lindy Hop and solo dancing. She has competed successfully at Lindy Shock and The Snowball and with Gustav she won 1st place in the Advanced Strictly Division at ILHC 2016, and they were finalists in the All-Star Strictly at ILHC 2017. They are both members of Brothers and Sisters in Rhythm who won the team competition at ILHC 2017.

Caroline & Audun

Caroline is at her happiest when her body and soul is filled with live jazz music. It only took one Lindy Hop class to convince her that she should dedicate all her free time – and more – to this dance. Her eagerness to learn, practice and develop as a dancer, has lead her to win and place in numerous competitions internationally. She is also known as a local and international teacher and performer, and event organizer. In her dancing, as well as in her teaching, her eye for technique, and a relaxed, but elegant flow of movement is prominent, as well as her focus on musicality. She cannot wait to share her energy and creativity with you all!

Audun is a social dancer at heart and he loves delving into the nerdy and technical details of the dance. As such, he is passionate about sharing the knowledge he has picked up along the way to help you get the most out of each social dance. He dedicated himself full time to lindy hop for a year from the fall of 2013, is currently living in Oslo, and is a part of the dancing troupe "The Norweegies". He is also an accomplished performer and competitor in lindy hop and authentic jazz, holding titles from competitions all over Europe. Most importantly, he is looking forward to dancing with you!
