Anders Sihlberg & Mikaela Hellsten

Anders is a swing dance instructor and performer based in Stockholm, Sweden. He has studied dances such as ballet, contemporary and modern jazz since the age of 10 and developed a passion for body movements, rhythm and teaching dance. At the age of 13 he fell in love with the African American dances of the swing era such as Lindy Hop, Vernacular Jazz, Charleston and Tap and has since then been fortunate to teach and perform around the world.

Anders jumps on every opportunity to develop himself within performing arts and swing dancing and wants nothing more than to share his passion and knowledge with people all over the world. Currently Anders is a part of the world renowned group The Harlem Hot Shots and is also performing in a range of different productions and projects. He teaches regularly at Chicago Swing Dance Studio, located in Stockholm, and travels around the world as a swing dance teacher.

Mikaela Hellsten grew up in Sweeden with a love for music and dancing. As a child she had a preference for Jazz and Rock’n Roll music with favourite artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Haley. She discovered the Lindy Hop at the age of 13 and since then her interest in Swing dancing and its music has kept on growing! Mikaela is nowadays travelling all over the world to teach and perform, and in the Sweeden scene, Felix Berghall is one of his main partners. She was already teaching at Swim Out in our 2nd edition with Nicolas Deniau. Join her again and discover her passion for dance.
