Joris Focquaert comes from Ghent, Belgium.
He discovered the Lindy Hop in Copenhagen when he was studying at the Commedia School for mime & physical theatre. A background in the art of clowning, he takes this to his Jazz dances & dance performances, forming his attitude towards the dance. In class, Joris tries to share his best of ideas. He is one of the starting figures of swing dance school 'Crazy Legs' (Ghent) & vernacular Jazz dance troupe 'the Dipsy Doodles'.
Today he is a busy working dancer in Belgium & abroad, next to studying the Jazz trombone.
