Anna Rio (France) and Jonatan Hedberg (Sweden)
Based in Toulouse, France, Anna and Jonatan are regulars on the international Lindy Hop circuit, well-known for their fun, innovative and creative dance style. An up and coming couple, they’ve got a string of recent achievements in the competition scene including 1st place in the ILHC Advanced Strictly 2018, 2nd place in the Championship Cup at Savoy Cup 2019 and finalists at Camp Hollywood Open Lindy 2019 as well as Snowball 2019.
Originally a high school teacher in Sweden, Jonatan quit his job in 2017 to move to France to dance full time with Anna and hasn’t looked back. Anna has a background in loads of other dances such as ballet, jazz and contemporary but was won over by Lindy Hop. Now, the two of them teach regularly in their local scene in Toulouse and are in demand all over Europe – they teach in a different city nearly every weekend, and we’re thrilled to have them here in Canberra for their Australian debut!
