Jule and Areski first bumped into eachother at the 2014 edition of the Chase. She loved how immensely reactive he was in the partnership while still having this playfulness in the dance; he loved how grounded she would be, inspiring new shapes and aesthetics by dancing them in perfect rhythm.

Jule’s introduction to Lindy Hop was preceded by her love of music. Making music since the early age of four and working as a singer for many years later made the musical approach to the dance the most natural for her.

Once the Lindy bug had bitten, Jule immediately started travelling to expose herself to many various concepts of technique from an early stage. It has always been: good connection in the partnership first for her – and she wanted to understand the little details from the very start.

The same approach Jule is following in her teaching. After having attended various classes at many festivals, she wanted know what it is that makes a difference between an okay class – and a really satisfying one. She therefor then decided to spend a lot of her time training with, and learning from, SwingStep – taking every opportunity to absorb their great knowledge on pedagogy. She still is constantly working on very mindfully improving the nuances that make a class valuable to everybody in the room.
