Erol hails from Turkey and is driven by jazz music, specifically by the bop era. Coming from a musical background at a young age, he has been in constant search and sharing of rare jazz recordings for the past few years. Known by his selection of groovy songs, he will be in ARH to make you dance to your heart’s content.

After starting her Lindy Hop journey in 2015 and loving to train and perform, Foteini – aka Dj Boogie Fo – started Djing as another outlet to express her love for Jazz. For the past two years she has been one of the main Djs of the Athens Authentic Jazz Dance project and she is now emerging into the local scene. From her you can expect a versatile set combining the works of great saxophonists with early Boogie and early Rhythm and Blues tunes.

Frida is one of the more active swing DJ’s in Stockholm and a popular house DJ at their renowned Chicago Swing Dance Studio, where she’s involved in many ways; as a teacher, club organizer and member of the Harlem Hot Shots. She began DJ:ing in 2010 and besides keeping her hometown swinging, she’s been playing regularly at Herräng Dance Camp, as well as various swing festivals around Europe. Frida discovered jazz in her early teens and it was the music that brought her into swing dancing—a passion that definitely has given color and range to her library and choice of tunes. Most of all she loves a good solid swing, but she’s not afraid to step out of the box when the mood is right; big-headed Bebop, hot tempered Rhythm ’n’ Blues, Cuban Mambo and low down dirty Blues are all genres close to her heart.

Felix Berghäll is a choreographer, performer and educator as well as a music researcher and DJ in Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz.

He has also been working the last 5 years co-organising one of the biggest events in the world with focus on Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz, Herräng Dance Camp. He just resigned from his position at Herräng Dance Camp in November 2021.

Felix has been dancing since he was 8 years old, starting with training and competing in the Swedish dance style Bugg as well as Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie and Double Bugg. All dances derived from Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz. He was in love from the beginning and was really, and still is taken by the music.

Currently, he is also part of leading a new NGO as board member and treasurer, Collective Voices for Change, along with other dancers and scholars in order to create a platform to address social issues in the Jazz dance community. The current focus of the initiative is to discuss the issues of cultural appropriation and racial injustice.
