Sanne & Hákon

Sanne discovered Lindy Hop in 2011 through a friend and immediately started taking classes in Amsterdam. She didn’t think Lindy Hop would play such a big role in her life, now she cannot think of her life without thinking of Lindy Hop.In 2014 Sanne started teaching weekly classes in Amsterdam. Throughout the years she became more and more active in the Amsterdam dance scene, organizing weekly socials and the annual Smokey Feet Festival.
In Sanne’s classes you’ll find lots of technique and musicality, together with a bit of goofiness. She likes to work on small details to make communicating with your partner easier.

Hákon got in touch with Lindy Hop through his friends who were playing in a jazz band at an event where Lindy Hop performances and workshops also took place. He started dancing Lindy Hop right away and hasn’t stopped since. In 2014 Hákon started teaching weekly classes in Amsterdam and in 2018 at international festivals. Hákon also organizes the weekly Friday social dance evening in Amsterdam and the annual Smokey Feet festival.
Inside this rather tall Icelander lies a huge nerd, not only when it comes to dancing but also music, because Hákon is also a professional pianist. In his lessons, Hákon likes to work on technical concepts that help you communicate with your partner so that you can more easily express yourself when the music starts playing.
