Since they met in 2012, CÉDRIC AND CAROLINE have decided to combine their competences in order to develop both their qualities of dancers and teachers. They are very active leading the local blues and swing scene in Strasbourg (Lindy Spot), as well as they go beyond borders increasingly further to dance, teach and perform. Together, they felt in love with blues and lindy hop since the beginning of their partnership. They have practised and danced a lot to understand how a movement can be easily initiated, from both sides of the couple, and how to adapt it to the music.

You will be able to appreciate their dynamic classes, a delicate blend of Cédric’s humor, and Caroline’s poetry. Both of them are keen to impart their ideas through a very progressive pedagogy. One that approaches technique in a very precise and detailed manner, and also teaches movements combining basics, surprises, musicality and grace. Whereas Cédric reminds you of the big principles of musicality, Caroline invites you to explore sensations, emotions and personal expression.

The Rhythm Sketches have only one goal in mind: to produce high-quality, energetic swing so that all the dancers can live their passion on the dance floor. They are increasingly demanded in France and in Europe (Paris, Tours, Lille, Friborg, Geneva, Turin …) and are never tired of traveling to make vibrate all the scenes they meet!
