Alex and Jill

JILL DE MUELENAERE

Jill started dancing when she was a child. She is now trained in classical ballet, modern jazz and jazz dance, contemporary dance, yoga and pilates. She has been occasionally teaching these different disciplines for the past years, sharing her time between her passion for dancing, her work as a contemporary dance producer, a massage therapist and a yoga instructor. She discovered Lindy hop while at University and since then has been teaching and attending numerous workshops around Europe. Jill has placed in a number of international Lindy hop competitions and is now teaching in Brussels and Belgium regularly. In Lindy hop her goal is to create a joyful yet challenging and encouraging experience for everyone allowing each dancer to develop his/her own individuality on the social dance floor.

ALEX MCCORMACK

Alex is Benelux vice champion in breakdancing and has been teaching urban dances for over 14 years. Later, McCormack discovered old clips such as Hellzapoppin and Spirit Moves, and said to himself “that’s how I want to dance this dance”. He decided to ongo the never ending journey of studying  “oldschool” style of Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz. For him, originality and authenticity comes from individual expression while remaining true to the dance and its founders. He will jam for hours into the early morning to uptempo Bebop Swing, shaky Mambo and slow Blues. Back in Brussels, he trains with his group, the Old Soulz.
