More video: Mirjam & Johan social dancing….
One of our favorite visiting Lindy Hop teachers Mirjam Johansson (Stockholm, Sweden) is back in town along with her dance partner Johan Umefjord!Â They are both accomplished competitors and performers on the European lindy circuit, and are excited to help you rock your rock-step, turn your dancing on its head, and inject fresh inspiration, styling, ideas and movement into your swing repertoire!
Leaders: Johan is like a James Bond of Lindy Hop: his disarmingly cool-yet-powerful sensibility sets a perfect backdrop for unexpected sneak attacks of rhythm and flash.
