Swing 4

This class is taught by:

Antoine Simard

Antoine was only 16 years old when he discovered Swing. He started by learning the Rockabilly Jive but shortly after, he discovered Lindy Hop and was since then found on every dance floor. He rapidly wanted to perfect his art, become a better dancer and won the ''Montreal Attitude Prize'' at the Canadian Championships in 2011. He was then able to take all the classes he wanted for free so the door was open for him to become the best he could be in Swing and Lindy Hop! He joined the SAF Battalion and then he got promoted to being part of the elite troup at Studio 88-SWING, the Swinging Air Force Squad, who won 1st place at CSC 2013, MDF 2013 and 2nd place of the impressive International Lindy Hop Championship. Antoine won many titles in Lindy Hop and Boogie Woogie including 1st place in the Jack n Jill open at Swingin’ New England 2011, 3rd place in Strictly Boogie Woogie at Jump & Dance 2011 and 1st of Strictly Boogie at Jump n Dance 2012. His teaching position at Studio 88 Swing gave him the opportunity to continue to grow, and to help others grow in the same great spirits in which he was raised. Young, yet mature, Antoine will surprise you with his humour, energy and obvious heart-felt dedication to the dance.
