Emil Håkansson threw himself in to the scene of social dancing in Stockholm at the age of 22 and has been a passionated part of it since.
The foundation from which he shares his dancing in class comes from his admiration for the originators of the dance combined with love for the music and individuality in expression rooted in jazz culture.
Emil has together with Sandra Klack performed Lindy hop and Authentic jazz in several constellations throughout his dance career. In his dancing he strives to recreate and express a raw authentic aesthetic, influenced by both dancers and musicians of the swing era.
He is also a two time winner of Stockholm Open, strictly lindy hop division, been in the finals at ESDC 2015 and won the Herräng Championships 2014.
