JuniJazz og LindySeilas 2018

Jazz Festival in Oslo!

Welcome to a blossoming Oslo, 2nd and 3rd of June, for the annual jazz festival, JuniJazz! The lovely Minou Ericson (SE), along with our very own Christopher Martinsen Mowe (NO) and Ane Johansen Heggernes (NO) will be teaching jazz for all levels. There will be a dance party on Saturday night, with music of all dance styles (lindy, boogie, balboa, shag and of course, jazz!). Sunday evening we set sail on the Oslo fjord with the sailboat “Helena”. On board we promise live music, dancing, and a lovely shrimp buffet. It’s possible to sign up for only jazz classes (JuniJazz), the sailboat event (LindySeilas) or the Saturday party. But we hope you will sign up for everything we offer!

Registration opens April the 1st!

Follow the updates on the Facebook event here.



In the registration form you sign up for a certain level, but it is not binding. We simply want an idea of the class sizes. The level descriptions indicate the difficulty of the class, but you are welcome to join any class you want!
If you are eager to learn your first jazz moves ever this is your track! Some experience with swing dancing or solo dance is recommended but not necessary. This class teaches basic steps, and simple variations and styling and maybe a routine. If you are planning to take or just took Jazz 1 at Bårdar we recommend this!
You are familiar with a variety of the basic jazz steps. You know some solo dance and want to work with your technique. You are eager to get a wider vocabulary and a bigger confidence in how to solo dance to jazz music. If you are planning to take or just took Jazz 2 at Bårdar we recommend this!
You should know and be confident with a variety of different jazz steps. Learning new steps and putting them in a sequence is not a problem. Your understanding of the music now makes it easy for you to put your own flavor and personality into the dance in terms of movements and rhythm. If you are planning to take or just took Jazz 3 at Bårdar we recommend this!


On Saturday, the classes and party will be at Bygdelagssamskipnaden (BLS) i Nordahl Bruns gate 22.

On Sunday, the classes will be at Bårdar danseinstitutt i Rosenkrantz’ gate 22

LindySeilas – sail trip – starts and ends at Aker Brygge.

Minou Ericson (SE)
Minou has a background in different street dance styles but fell for lindy hop and vernacular jazz after her first class at Chicago Dance Studio in 2011. Since then she’s travelled the world for events, teaching and learning along the way. To Minou, jazz dances should reflect the freedom of jazz music. Call and response, trading, solos, collaboration, improvisation and individual freedom of expression. She wants to inspire other dancers to be themselves, to dare to experiment and to move in a way that makes them feel great.

Christopher Martinsen Mowe (NO)
Ever since Christopher discovered Lindy hop and the Authentic Jazz ten years ago, he has been hooked ever since. In his classes he enjoy working with flow, rhythm and body awareness. When dancing Authentic Jazz, he loves to play with the music, and always tries to find ways to incorporate it when dancing Lindy hop.

Ane Johansen Heggernes (NO)
Ane has been dancing most her life, in 2008 she took her first lindy class and was instantly hooked. She quickly started contributing to her local scene in Oslo, teaching and organizing events. As her passion for lindy & authentic jazz grew she started traveling, teaching and dancing her way through different countries. Anes love for music has brought her through most genres in the book, where the most important lesson always is to bring passion to whatever you do. In class she focuses on the purity of movement and technical ability together with as much joy as possible.

The band

Certain members of the Shoeshine Boys will be joining us at the LindySeilas!

The Shoeshine Quartet
Shoeshine Quartet is the quartet crew of Shoeshine Boys, a young jazz band from Oslo established in 2008. The band plays New Orleans-based traditional jazz, swing and rythm & blues. With their high levels of energy and their playfulness, they have been well-known in the tradition jazz community in Oslo, and regularly perform at various jazz and dance events in Norway. Among other things, the band has been playing at the Lindy Hop festival Winter Jump for several consecutive years.
