Lucile & Nicolas
Lucile loves to experience movement. From the tiny 6 year old acrobatic gymnast being thrown into the air to the contemporary/modern dancer of 16 years, she has always sought new ways of moving, leading her inevitably to discover and fall in love with the swing dance in 2012!
After living 5 years teaching swing full-time in her adopted home of Barcelona. Lucile is now back home in Toulouse (France) where she teach at the Studio Hop and continue traveling around Europe. As a competitor she has won and placed in events such as: ILHC, ESDC, Savoy Cup, GSDF, Torino Swing Festival, Summer Camp Swing Festival, Crazy Rhythm Challenge, Barswingona, Paris Jazz Roots, Hot Blues, Falling in Blues and more.
She is part of the Team Brothers and Sisters In Rhythm, qualified International Champion Team in 2017 and 2018.
As a teacher Lucile loves giving her students the ideas and freedom to discover their own way of moving and find how to adapt and connect with everyone. Lucile believes swing dance is specially beautiful because it allows us to experience the choreographer, dancer, and audience as one, in time and space with each other and as a whole. And this is why she can always be found happiest swingin’ it on the dance floor, sharing her love and spirit of jazz with all.
Nicolas attended his first Rock’n Roll dance class at the age of 8 and after only one year of dancing he took part in his first competition. This was the start of a long competition career in Rock’n Roll and Boogie Woogie. He was early drawn to the show aspect of the dance which you can still see in his dancing!
He performed a number of times at various shows, placed in well-known competitions and taught at many many camps around the world.
