Bahadir & Ceren
Ceren is a lover of old time swing era movies since her childhood. From the moment she saw Lindy Hop social dancing at a music festival, all she could think about was to be a part of it. She started dancing Lindy Hop and Authentic Jazz as a member of Istanbul Lindy Hoppers and later became a local teacher for Istanbul Lindy Hop community. Ceren, as a dedicated lindy hopper, perceives Lindy Hop as a foreign language that allows us to communicate with each other and share beautiful moments in many different ways.
I discovered Lindy Hop back in 2004 in Lithuania and it has been my main hobby and passion since then. I love Lindy Hop because it’s such a joyful dance. It makes me smile, it makes me feel happy and when I put on my dance shoes and get on the dance floor it seems like all the daily problems have disappeared. And of course I love swing music which is so closely connected to the dance. I also dance Balboa and Authentic Jazz and would like to learn Tap dancing. Because of Lindy Hop I met so many nice people all over Europe and made great friends here in Luxembourg. I am one of the founders of the Lindy Hop scene in Luxembourg and it’s been such a great experience to share this joy of dancing with other people.
