Moe Sakan has had professional training in many types of dance, including jazz, ballet, tap and contemporary dance. In 1999 Moe fell in love with the Lindy Hop, since then this has been her dance of choice.
A pearl of the Orient, Moe moved to London in 2000, bringing a sparkle to the local swing dancing scene, and soon became the UK's top female swing dancer. An active social and competition dancer, she is proud to have won several UK and US competition titles. Winning the world's biggest Jack 'n Jill competition with Marcus Koch at Frankie 99 is one of the most special titles Moe has been proud to win.
Moe travels the world extensively both for social dancing and teaching Lindy Hop. Countries Moe has taught in include Sweden, Spain, Japan, Germany, France, Belgium and of course the UK. She has also enjoyed dancing for several productions, including theatre, television and film.
Well known as a vintage enthusiast, Moe is passionate about the music and fashion of the Swing era. Her dedication to the culture is also reflected in her attitude towards the dance, as she constantly endeavours to recreate an authentic style, and her passion certainly reflects the spirit of the dance as it was back in the day.
