Martin Lasthein

Martin and Minou have been dancing together since meeting at Herräng Dance Camp in 2012. They’ve danced their way through events and workshops in Europe and the US with their trademark playful style and contagious, genuine love of lindy hop.

Ever since discovering Lindy Hop at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Martin’s been pushing his dance by competing, teaching, performing and his favourite: social dancing. His musical intuition comes from an odd mix of his dad’s love of big band jazz, playing the drums as a teenager and a brief spell as a house DJ in London.
