“Jazz is an exhilarating call for freedom and the purest expression of the joy of being alive. Lindy Hop is that philosophy made visible," says Malou, and her love for this philosophy is at the core of everything she undertakes.
Malou graduated as a contemporary dancer and choreographer from Zurich Dance Theatre School, which gave her a strong base in the dance techniques of modern, contemporary, jazz and ballet. She is a versatile artist that transitions effortlessly between Europe and India, where she has been based for 7 years.
She has choreographed for the Hindi film industry, also known as Bollywood, and has promoted, performed and taught swing and jazz in Bombay/Mumbai, the City of Dreams, as a founding member of Lindy Hop India. She produces and choreographs plays for her own dance company and works regularly as a stage dancer, currently at the Zurich Opera.
Malou has over 10 years of working experience as a professional Lindy Hop performer, teacher and choreographer. Her teaching aims at achieving the creative freedom to express jazz through acquiring a strong foundation of skills, dance technique and rhythm.
