Mimmi & Patrik (SWE)

“Her feet run the floor like fingers over the keys of a piano—with clear intentions and deep sound. Rhythms are tight, movements fresh and joy unmistakable.” – Swingzine.com

Mimmi is a true disciple of dance. In love with the raw and wild style of dancers in Harlem in the 30s and 40s, she is a dancer filled with energy and joy, easily incorporating passing inspirations into her own style.  A breath of fresh air from times gone by, she makes the dance her own every time she graces the dance floor.
Initially a social dancer, her passion soon spread to performing, and since 2012 she has been a member of the famous dance company Harlem Hot Shots. As well as teaching regularly at the Chicago Swing Dance Studio in Stockholm, Mimmi travels to teach and perform in all continents of the globe. She has danced in countries including Australia, US, Brazil, Singapore, Korea, South Africa and Mozambique just to mention a few – and of course frequently all over Europe.

Also based in Stockholm, Sweden, Patrik Petterson is a dancer, teacher, and fellow member of the notorious Harlem Hot Shots. His main focus and source of inspiration has always been the genuine spirit of the swing era, and in particular the style of dance that originated in the Savoy Ballroom and was made popular by the troupe Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers. It is this authentic style, flavour and flair that he successfully brings to all of his performances, his classes, and every time he takes to the dance floor.
