Marie N’diaye & Anders Sihlberg

Marie N’diaye and Anders Sihlberg have been Lindy Hop partners since 2010.

Marie has been dancing almost as long as she has been walking, training mostly in modern Jazz.  She fell in love with Swing, Lindy Hop and Vernacular Jazz in 2007.  A true scientist, Marie loves history and facts – studying the roots of the dances through collaborations with other dancers as well as through research conducted on the different dancers of the swing era.  Her main focus is on the jazz women and chorines of the time.  She taught at Cat’s Corner in Montreal before moving to Stockholm, a base from which she has since taught internationally.(www.mariendiaye.com)

Anders has studied dances such as ballet, contemporary and authentic jazz since the age of 10 and has developed a passion for body movements and teaching dance.  At the age of 13 he fell in love with Lindy Hop and has since then been fortunate to teach and perform around Sweden and Europe. (www.herrang.com)
