Felix Berghäll is a choreographer, performer, educator, music researcher, and DJ in Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz. He studied sports coaching and science at the Swedish School of Sport and Health Science in Stockholm. He has been part of the national team as an athlete in Boogie Woogie and Lindy Hop and is now Co-Head Coach with his partner Mikaela Hellsten for the national team of Lindy Hop in Sweden. 

He has also been working for the last five years co-organizing one of the most significant events in the world with a focus on Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz, Herräng Dance Camp. He just resigned from his position at Herräng Dance Camp in November 2021. 

Felix has been dancing since he was eight, training and competing in the Swedish dance style Bugg and Lindy Hop, Boogie Woogie, and Double Bugg. All dances derived from Lindy Hop and African American Vernacular Jazz. He was in love from the beginning and was really, and still is, taken by the music.

He also leads a new NGO as a board member and treasurer, Collective Voices for Change, along with other dancers and scholars, to create a platform to address social issues in the Jazz dance community. The initiative's current focus is to discuss the problems of cultural appropriation and racial injustice.

Since the first competition in 2001 to stepping on the stage of the famous APOLLO Theater (Harlem, NY) in 2014, Felix's favorite place to be is on stage. There’s no place else that he’ll rather be, that’s where he feels the best. He performs almost every weekend traveling to events across the world and he’s been part of everything from small productions to one hour full length theater shows.

In the last 4-5 years of traveling, Felix has grown a big interest in DJing and collecting Jazz and Swing Music. He has a huge interest in the music and the dances connected to it and is trying to widen his knowledge as much as possible with anything that can help him become a better dancer, teacher and DJ. This interest has always been there since he started dancing at a very young age and was the main reason why he wanted to start dancing. The last 3 years he has been trying to, and getting asked to be involved as a DJ at the festivals that he already is teaching at and the interest is growing. 


The last 6 years he has been DJing at events like Herräng Dance Camp, The Snowball Swingala, Orient Lindy Express, Athens Rhythm Hop and more. 


He has also done work as a DJ for business parties/exhibitions such as ABSOLUTE ART. (more at
