Mimmi Gunnarsson

An inspirational dancer and teacher – distinctively authentic style and effortless movement, Mimmi is a joy to watch perform, and her solo classes are some of the finest around.”Her feet run the floor like fingers over the keys of a piano—with clear intentions and deep sound. Rhythms are tight, movements fresh and joy unmistakable.” – Swingzine.com

Mimmi is a dancer filled with energy and joy. A true student of the dance, in love with the raw and wild style of dancers in Harlem in the 30s and 40s. Her inspiration is from everywhere which she with care and ease incorporates into her own style.

As a breath of fresh air from a time that past, she makes the dance her own every time she swings by the dance floor. Her teaching style is grounded in the authentic jazz roots style and she synthesises music and movement in a unique way.

Starting off as a social dancer, she soon found the passion for performing – since 2012 as a member of the famous dance company Harlem Hot Shots. Besides teaching regularly at Chicago Swing Dance Studio in Stockholm, Mimmi has travelled to teach and perform in all continents of the globe (except Antarctica). Countries such as Australia, US, Brazil, Singapore, Korea, South Africa and Mozambique just to mention a few – And of course frequently all around Europe.
