Lindy Hop Workshop Weekend with Hasse & Marie – 3rd/4th December 2011
Cambridge Lindy Hoppers are delighted to present a Lindy Hop workshop weekend with the fantastic Hasse and Marie in Cambridge on Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th December 2011, accompanied by a social dance on the Saturday evening.
Teachers: Hasse Mattson and Marie Nahnfeldt Mattson
“Hasse and Marie are internationally recognized for their high energy and spirit as Lindy Hop dancers and instructors. Their classes emphasize the use of musicality, technique and partner connection. Energy and focus on fun are constant elements to every class.
This couple have a lot of teaching experience, all from beginners to competition couples, and they appear on the teaching line up for many established camps around the globe, including Herräng (Sweden), Camp Hollywood (USA) and Rock That Swing Festival (Germany) just to mention a few.
Hasse and Marie live just outside Stockholm, Sweden. They have been dancing together for many years and are four times Swedish Champions in Boogie Woogie (1998- 2001) and also one time Swedish Champions in Bugg (2001).
Today they are no longer competing together, but every once in a while you´ll see them entering Jackn´Jills, Intergenerationals and balboa competitions – being very successful. They are doing their best to learn more about dancing and to spread their knowledge and passion for Swing dancing to others.”
