As oppose to me, my sister is a linedancer and choreographer of linedances.
I DO actually have some use of it since they use a lot of Jazz steps that we (Swing Dancers) use, and often by the same names.
Otherwise we are on opposite sides of the dancing world.  😉
The guy she dances with is her husband, DJ and choreographer Mike Erlandsson.

She is a rather known linedance choreographer that decided to chorograph a dance with an Arabaic motif, inspired by bellydancing (+ a little salsa and swing).

The dance became very popular in Asia, Canada and….well check out you tube.

She has since done dances inspired by Jewish, Russian and Finnish folkdancing in a way doable in linedancing.

PS: “Habibi” means “darling” or “beloved” in Arabic.

Choreographer Micaela Svensson
She had hardly written the dance (i was in the room) when this popped up on YouTube from Malaysia.
A group called PSLDA. They added theyre own little touch, the beautiful “Ballroom / Latino” arm movements for instance (one SHOULD make a dance ones oewn in my opinion. It IS after all an artform).

Skinhead Moon Stompers


Ska music.

Favored by many skinheads,mods, suedeheads and so on (originally the skinhead movement consisted of mainly English and Jamaican working class youth and the music preferred in above mentioned groups was often Ska or other “black” music, incuding Soul, Rocksteady and Reaggea).

The most usual dance style connected to Ska is called “Skanking”.

Robyn – Hang with Me (+facts and pics)


Robin Miriam Carlsson (born 12 June 1979), better known by her stage name Robyn, is a Swedish recording artist, singer, and songwriter. Robyn became known in the late nineties for her worldwide dance-pop hit “Do You Know (What It Takes)” from her debut album Robyn Is Here (1997). She co-wrote the song “Du gör mig hel igen” (You Make Me Whole Again) for Melodifestivalen 1997. The popularity of her #1 hit single “With Every Heartbeat“, and subsequent album release Robyn (2005), brought her mainstream success worldwide. In January 2009 Robyn won a Swedish Grammis award for Best Live Act 2008.

Robyn released the first of a trilogy of albums to be released over the course of 2010 titled Body Talk Pt. 1, in June of that year, peaking at #1. It was her first album since Robyn. The album’s lead single “Dancing on My Own” was released a few weeks prior to the album’s release, and became a hit single worldwide, and brought her a 53rd Grammy Awards nomination for the category of Best Dance Recording. A follow up album, Body Talk Pt. 2, was released on September 6, entering straight at #1 of the Swedish chart, and the final album of the trilogy,Body Talk, was released on November 22, 2010 with the first single “Indestructible“. The next Body Talk single will be “Call Your Girlfriend”.

She is incredible live!
