Nils Nygårdh was born and raised in Mora, Dalarna. He’s a country boy that moved to the big city to study the drums. True to the arts and always looking for ways to broaden his cultural horizon. That’s how he came in contact with the lindy hop, wanting to try something new and hip in his late teens. Especcialy fascinated by the airsteps and the fast dancing that was going on. Nils is the first person to enter the dance studio in the morning and the last one to leave. Hot tempered, moody and fierce during practice. His interest in music shows in his dancing. He’s a drummer and that’s probably why he’s a solid tap and rhythm dancer – strict with time and technique and always looking for perfection. Since 2016 he is a member of the dance company “The Hot Shots” (former Harlem Hot Shots). A company that through stage performances shine a light on the rich African American swing dance traditions of the 1920s-50s. The company strives after creating personal and innovative performances while respectfully paying homage to what came before them.
