Mikaela was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up with a love for music and dancing. She first got in contact with Lindy Hop in the late ninetees and already then she felt extremely at home with the dance. Throughout the years Lindy Hop and other related dance forms have kept on growing on her and she finds it to be an endless source of inspiration. The more she learns about the music and its history, the more she enjoys it and the more she wants to learn.

Mikaela has been performing in different settings since around 2005 and especially enjoys the theatrical aspects of dancing. She finds the richness of jazz dancing a great form of expression, on and off stage.

Mikaela is happy to share anything she can about the dance, in and outside the classroom.
