Duo improvises when music won’t start – then leave the crowd screaming with smoothest lindy hop

February 10th, 2020

A real dancer knows how to improvise when needed and sees it as an opportunity to challenge their skills. This is what this amazing couple did in the Seoul Lindyfest 2018.

Just when you know everything is ready and you’re so excited to showcase your talent – the music won’t start. It happens and artists from the entertainment industry know all too well that sometimes, you need to improvise to keep the show going.

When the staff of the Seoul Lindyfest2018 informed Remy and Tatiana that their music won’t start, the two dancers started creating their own beats by snapping their fingers.

Good thing the music played and it was their cue to start dancing.

The Lindy Harper Festival in Seoul or more commonly known as the Seoul Lindyfest 2018 was held last October 12 – 14, 2018 at the Big Apple Bar in Seoul, South Korea.

Here, people were expected to meet the most promising names in the industry of dancing, watch a hot competition, plus great workshops from the best instructors!

Among the instructors are Remy Kouakou Kouame and Tatiana UDRY, who did this wonderful lindy hop dance that we’re featuring. If you’re a fan, you’d already know who they are but if this is the first time you’ve heard their names, then you definitely need to watch their trending videos!

The setting of the stage gives that nostalgic feeling. It’s like you’re watching something from the olden days that is both fun yet classic. Their outfits were simple but very beautiful as well.

People were cheering and clapping as they showcased their signature moves. Their every step is in high precision, their hips and arm movements were smooth and timely. Of course, this was already expected as they were already pros in their field of work/passion.

We can’t help but notice how they did their Lindy Hop with ease as if they were just playing. We all know that this form of dancing is one of the toughest because the movements of the dancers requires a firm amount of stretch and even lag but they also need to keep up with the pace of the music.

This beautiful couple chose to dance to the song Rangers by Sage Min Swingtet. We’ve heard so many times that the crowd clapped and cheered but did you notice how they screamed on that leg sweep at 02:34?

We also loved the dance move that they did on 2:58 and you know that the crowd did too! Clearly, these two were having so much fun!

What of the best moments of the dance was when Tatiana’s belt came off! For some, they would rather leave it alone but being the gentleman that he is, Remy picked it up and even used it to add accent to their dance and the crowd cheered as he puts it back on his partner – Tatiana.

Tatiana did very cute dance steps while Remy was putting her belt on – the crowd adored it and they continued dancing.

Just as the dance was about to end, Tatiana’s belt fell off again!

We love how Remy picked it up and comically did the number “2” sign as if asking her, “again?”

Tatiana smiled and did a gestured that said “well”.

This time it was Remy who tried to wear the belt on himself which made the crowd screamed and laugh with joy!

Now, this is one performance that anyone would enjoy watching! Take time and enjoy Remy and Tatiana’s Lindy hop dance!
