Remy Kouakou Kouame fell into the Swing pot at an early age. He has been an established teacher and performer for many years, traveling around the world to international camps and festivals, sharing his passion and knowledge. His approach to Swing dances is special because it combines the authenticity and the respect of the dances – thanks to the education he has learnt from his elders – with an originality and creativity inspired by his experience of many other artforms, with the addition of some spicy madness that characterizes Remy!
What he loves to share the most is the joy that dancing provides, as well as helping people finding their unique voices. As an established competitor, Remy earned many awards in Boogie Woogie, Lindy Hop and Solo Jazz. His teaching, dancing and performing are very tainted by what he believes at the moment and can be changed from one month to another as he is not afraid of “thinking different than the day before”!
