UPDATE DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION

Cats’ Corner is suspending all social dancing until further notice.
Most of our Tuesday classes have been cancelled as well.
However, we do plan to have a solo class in Big Apple, with somewhat more limited participants. We also ask that you stay home when you feel the slightest symptom, and we will give you a store credit for that night. Just send an e-mail to info@catscorner.se.

There are a couple of classes planned for May, the registration is still open for these. We hope the situation is better and we are able to go through with these classes. If we have to cancel them, we will refund the registration fee.

Malmö Spring Jump is still one and a half month away, and we have not made any decision to cancel it. Please be patient, as our MSJ crew is already working hard on assessing the situation. We will send out information as soon as we have anything to share.

LinaMaria & Mattias

LinaMaria & Mattias

LinaMaria Bengtsson is a performing artist and jazz singer who started dancing lindyhop actively 2014 because of the love of Swing Music. She also likes Tap Dance, Acrobatics, Blues Dancing, Collegiate Shag, and Yoga. Mattias Bruzelius fell in love with the lindyhop 2010 and spends most of his spare time dancing and practising acrobatics.  He likes the joy, playfulness, musicality of the lindyhop, and the communication between lead and follow. When Mattias och LinaMaria teaches, they are focusing on lead/following-techniques and having fun with the dance. Their priority is dynamics (softness, movement, energy) over routines, rules and patterns, and they believe that the lead and follow are equally responsible in the dance. LinaMaria och Mattias have been teaching together since 2018, giving weekly classes in Malmö and Lund for HepTown, and in Helsingborg through Cats Corner. They teach summer courses at Fridhems Folkhögskola, and are performing with different show groups. They also do weekend workshops in Lindyhop and Lindyhop Aerials and you are welcome to ask them for private lessons, workshops and performances. Kontakt LinaMaria 0733-305890 Mattias 0702-263534
