Ruben started swing dancing eight years ago. Boogie Woogie was the dance that caught his attention first, but he very soon discovered Lindy Hop as well. In 2013 he started teaching in Bergen, where the social boogie scene is very strong. After he began competing internationally a few years ago, he has accomplished various achievements. Ruben has a passion for teaching, competing and especially social dancing. The highlight of the week is the Friday social dance in Bergen, where the floor is packed. He and his partner Ingvild embrace the joy, fun and spontaneity in swing dancing, and love to connect and play around with the “here and now” on the social floor.
Some fo his achievements are as follows:
Semifinals in the Lindy Hop Strictly Competition week 2 of Herrang 2018.
2nd place in the Boogie Woogie Strictly Competition at Boogie Feet’s festival 2018.
2nd place in the Solo Jazz Competition at Copenhagen Lindy Exchange 2018.
