Helena broke a leg. Well, not exactly a leg…a foot. The right foot. And she could not dance Lindy Hop at all. Ella, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Lester Young came to the rescue and she felt an urge to play her favourite songs from these fabulous jazz geniuses and make people move even if she couldn’t! She focus on making smooth transitions and building an atmosphere that makes people to not stop dancing. Since then, she’s played in events such as Herrang, Lindy Focus, ILHC, The Snowball, Winter Jump and others. Helena is Brazilian, she’s is based in Madrid and spends her free time listening, dancing and learning about jazz, Brazilian music, afrobeats, and more.
