"Emil, a relatively late starter of swing dancing, was sucked in to the scene of social dancing in Stockholm at the age of 22 and has been a passionated part of it since. His admiration for the originators of the dance combined with his passion for the music and aesthetics of the swing jazz era is the foundation from which he shares his dancing in class. Emil is a two time winner of Stockholm Open, strictly lindy hop division.
Sandra Klack and Emil Håkansson were once a part of the dance troupe The Midnight Rounders, a group sprung from love and affection from times that were. But it wasn't until just recently they started to practice and teach together. It worked out so well that they won the first competition they entered together.
Together, they have a clear authentic vision and in their work they aim to keep and hone the style, craziness, energy and feeling of the golden age."
