First out is: JONAS OLLMAR.

Jonas is not only active behind the camera, shooting all the photos from our Sunday practicas but he is also one of the main instructors at Brazouka. For those of you who are not familiar with Jonas, he started dancing Zouk at Brazouka Dance school back in 2009. He began taking classes at Brazouka and continued developing his skills travelling around the world participating at different congresses; London, Prague, Barcelona, Brno etc.  He has also visited the city of Lambazouk in Brasil: Porto Seguro in 2013. Today, he is one of the instructors at Brazouka Dance School sharing his professional skills and passion for the dance. You will find him teaching Zouk on Sundays the intermediate/advanced course, starting the 23rd of April, at Västmannagatan 46 Studio Salsa.

BC: What caught your attention about the Zouk dance?
JONAS: The thing that got me interested from the beginning was the beautiful music and also that the dance is so different from other dances, with its soft movements and the possibility to improvisation and music adaptation.

BC: Do you have any favorite dance couple?
JONAS: I have several instructors and performers I like, and I appreciate them for different reasons. Also, they have often been important for me at specific times of my dancing development. Some are good at teaching to beginners, some give good energy and motivation, some are good at technique, some are good performers and have a nice chemistry, etc. But most importantly, they are simply friendly people!

BC: What would you want to share and communicate to your students?
JONAS: As a beginner student, don't forget that all of the more experienced and "advanced" dancers you see at the dance floor have been total beginners at one time. It might seem difficult or even impossible to achieve that level of dancing, but you have to take small steps towards your goal, and cherish all your smaller successes, and before you know it, you too will be a good dancer! But don't forget: you never stop learning!

BC: Finally…tell us something about you that we didn’t know!
JONAS: Well, many of you probably know I’m also dancing West Coast Swing and that I started my dancing career by learning salsa. However, before that I practiced martial arts for about 10 years which I had use of when I started dancing “social dances”, even though the leader and follower roles are a bit different...

A video project with Ingrid Bergman

The dance has brought us together; the dancers Jonas and Joanna and the graphic designer Ingrid. We all seized the moment and decided to initiate a video project - a dance video, capturing as well the beautiful city of Stockholm in the background. The result was successful and we named it: "A dance meeting”.
