Hasse Mattson

We are super excited (infact we were jumping around the room when we heard he was available) to welcome back the man mountain that is Hasse Mattsson
Hasse was one of our first international teachers when we started this crazy journey, He has been a huge influence on how we teach and he also introduced us to Gordon Webster’s fab music

Hasse is internationally recognized for his high energy, positive attitude and spirit as Lindy Hop dancer and instructor. His classes emphasize the use of partner connection, musicality and technique. Energy and focus on fun are constant elements to every class.

Hassie has a lot of teaching experience and  appear’s on the teaching line up for many established camps around the globe, including Herräng (Sweden), Lindy Shock (Hungary) and WoodHop Festival (Germany) just to mention a few. And is also the co organizers of the Snowball.

Hasse and his wife Marie live just outside Stockholm, Sweden. They have been dancing and competing together for many years. Today their main focus is social dancing but every once in a while you´ll still see them entering Jack n´Jills, Intergenerationals, lindy and balboa competitions – being very successful.
