Les professeurs

Leti

Pour Leti, les danses jazz sont indissociables de leur contexte culturel. Sa proposition, comme enseignante et comme performer, tâche de s'inscrire dans une lignée, celle des danseurs qui ont porté (et qui portent encore) cette tradition. Nous sommes des nains assis sur les épaules de géants. À la recherche constante du groove et du swing, Leti explore les manières dont le corps résonne avec la musique, ainsi que le développement de l’improvisation et de l’expression personnelle. Lindy hopper depuis 2011, sa danse se nourrit de la diversité de styles du jazz vernaculaire ainsi que des récits et des histoires de vie qui les entourent. Le partage et l'échange sont au cœur de sa démarche. Aujourd’hui, Leti enseigne le lindy hop et le jazz vernaculaire à plein-temps à Montpellier, à l'école Montpeul’ Swing. Pédagogue passionnée, Leti encourage ses élèves à se dépasser et à trouver leur propre voix, tout en restant porteurs de la tradition de cette danse. Leti mène également une carrière académique, et dédie actuellement sa recherche à explorer et comprendre la manière dont les danses jazz sont perçues en France, et la place de celles-ci au sein des politiques culturelles.

Tadas and Pamela

Tadas and Pamela met on a dance floor in Lithuania, and for years they enjoyed social dancing as it was. Just before the pandemic hit, they decided to practice here and there, now and then. Oh, little did Tadas and Pamela know that they would have all the time on their hands and that they would start meeting each other every week. And just like that, while sharing an interest and passion for African American dances, their casual dance offs slowly grew into a solid partnership. Now, as the world is slowly coming back on its feet, they have started traveling and competing to share their love for dancing. Tadas and Pamela's classes focus on a personal style, motivation to practice, and surely this powerful magic called IMPROVISATION. They dance to express, to feel and inspire!

 

Marion
& Sylvain

Marion & Sylvain forment un duo de choc !
Tout autant passionnés par le Lindy Hop social que le
Lindy Hop de performance, ils aiment explorer toutes les
manières de s’exprimer au travers de cette danse.
En social, ils aiment particulièrement repousser les limites
du « guidé-suivi », et créer un espace ou chacun propose
et répond indépendamment de son « rôle de danse ».
Dans un contexte plus performatif, ils se passionnent pour
la création de routines chorégraphiques avec lesquelles ils
explorent leur expression personnelle.
Enseignants réguliers depuis 2016 à Swing & Shout (Tours),
ils ont récemment créé leur propre scène à Saumur. Ils
sont également intervenants réguliers pour Shake That
Swing (Paris) dans le cadre des Advanced Wednesdays.
Sylvain est également graphiste et motion designer.
Marion est doctorante à l’Université Versailles St Quentin,
et rédige actuellement une thèse sur le Lindy Hop intitulée
« codes sociaux et rôles identitaires dans le Lindy Hop :
récits transgressifs ». Ce travail de recherche aborde de
nombreux sujets comme l’appropriation culturelle, la
nécessité de décoloniser cette discipline et l’importance
centrale de la construction identitaire par la danse.
Sylvain & Marion prêtent une attention particulière à
respecter les origines africaines-américaines de la danse,
ainsi qu’à placer les femmes et les hommes qui ont
développé le Lindy Hop au coeur de leur pratique.
