Close Knit Grooves

This past Sunday Signe Åman, Moa Nilsson and Tilda Stejdahl from Fryshuset danscenter came out to Näsbypark for a dance photoshoot in my Green Room. This photoshoot was an amalgamation of different styles, we were mixing street dancing with Audrey Hepburn-ish style, and even threw in some metal and gold flakes at the end.

Moa Nilsson, 21 years old. Born in Dalsland, but living in Stockholm. I am currently studying at danscenter fryshusets yrkesutbildning to become a professional dancer. I have fallen in love with the hiphop-culture and its rawness. I chose the oversized-outfit because I feel the most like myself in that, and it helps me add some interesting heaviness to the picture and my dance. Baggy clothes is also something I haven’t seen as much of in dance-pictures, which I think deserves some more space

I am Signe Åman, 21 years old originally from Skellefteå, Västerbotten, but now located in Stockholm where I study to become a professional dancer at Danccenter, Fryshuset. I’m a jazz and modern dancer at heart but I’ve become more and more into commercial/street styles during my education.

In some of the pictures you can see a white “bolero” style shirt that I crocheted this spring. There is also a couple pictures of me in a pair of super wide jeans which was two pairs of my fathers old jeans that I’ve recycled and combined.

Tilda Stejdahl, 21 years old. Born in Mariannelund, Småland but now living in Stockholm. I started dancing when I was 4 years old and I’m still passionate about it. I’m a jazz dancer at heart but feel that I have grown into modern and hip hop in recent years. I am now studying at danscenter, fryshusets yrkesutbildning to become a professional dancer.
