Dankvalitet Blogg

Jag blev ombedd att göra en blogg för Dansvalitet där uppdateringar kunde göras snabbt och nu är den klar.


Marcos Lilja - Dansvalitet

I stort sett vad som helst relaterat till Dansvalitet kan postas där, det lämnar jag upp till Marcos men jag har redan pratat med honom en en liten beskrivande sida / historik omkring de olika danserna.

Jag har skrivit en om Lindy Hop, nästa blir nog Salsa, följt av Bugg så att jag har täck de danser han lär ut mest av rent deltagarmässigt.

Music: It’s such a small world by Rodney Crowell duet with Rosanne Cash — CD Album Diamonds & Dirt

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.

HabibiArabic Linedance, 28 counts, 4 walls, improver level.
In memory of Fajez ChebebThis is actually my sister Micaela Svensson 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.

Salsa Cuba

Salsa Linedance,32 count, 2 wall, improver level, no tags.
32 count, 2 wall, intermediate/advanced level, danced with 2 tags
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).

Sleep and discipline

I have told myself i´m going dancing tomorrow….and interstingly i find myself here blogging.

I know i should go to bed so i am prepared tomorrow but i have gotten into a rot where i stay up all night.

It is like the “yaaay, this is fun” center has been turned off.

Tomorrow is beginner and advanced Salsa.

Let´s hope i can kick my own butt down to the train.

At times Jönköping feels almost like a real town!


If only it wasnt impossible to get to and from it when you live in the pile of snow i´m enjoying.

Last bus at weekends leaves at 2am.The bars close then to witch should seem perfect, unless you want to stay iout longer (and perhaps you´re not sure if you´re going home).

Sure it IS a town but has just as much of smalltown feel as metropol.

Now that my dance instructor messed up things and so on it left me with nothing to do.

Who would have known i would one day find myself without friends and without anything to activate me.

Instead i´ve got this.
