Sep & AlexiaBelgium & France
Alexia & Sep recently partnered up as they discovered that Belgian Chocolate and French Wine was indeed a tasty combination. In their dancing they are exploring all kinds of connection. Because what is important to them, is to be able to share the swing dance magic and fun with anybody on the floor. In their class, they make sure that everybody enjoys it, and improves within their own style and way of moving.
Sep is a very passionate swing jazz dancer and music expert. He is based in Ghent, Belgium. The combination of his educational background and daily practise makes him a unique person to work with. His energy and passion for the dance, music, art and vintage business made him a welcomed guest in many projects in Belgium and around Europe.
Alexia was rescued by swing dancing in 2005, when she was about to engage into standard competition dancing. Attending her first Herrang in 2007, she has since travelled the world to learn more about the dance, its origins, and jazz in general. With a background in Ballet, jazz and contemporary dancing, she mostly gets interests in african rhythm based dances , also learning percussions and drums in the process. That would explain why rhythm stays so important to her, and the core of her dancing.
When teaching, besides rhythm, she will really emphasis on the role of the follower in the partnership, as well as how to share a common musical ground with your partner…
while still being yourself!
