About the speaker

Helen and Gilles

Ever since they’ve seen Lindy Hop, Helen and Gilles have been inspired by it. They loved the improvisation, expressiveness and musicality that have been the hallmarks of this dance since it began in Harlem of the 1930s. Travelling across Europe to learn from the best, they discovered and enjoyed a wide variety of social dancing. They now share their passion for this fluid, high energy dance style by teaching and organizing events in Fribourg and Lausanne.
