Martha Standal

Martha Standal

Martha Standal is born in Ålesund and work widely within performing arts, as a dancer, actress and choreographer. She graduated at the Oslo National academy of The Arts, and has since then worked and assisted in musicals, theaters and dance performances.

Martha debuted in the musical “Cabaret” at Trøndelag Teatre in 2008, and has since then had a close relationship to the theatre and worked on a range of shows there. She has also worked at The New Theatre in Copenhagen, Rogaland Theatre, Sogn And Fjordane Theatre, Nordland Theatre and The National Theatre in Norway.
Martha is currently starring in the play “Havfruen” at Trøndelag Theatre, but has squeezed in a class here at VSN in her schedule! We are so happy to have her here!



Tuva & Elisabeth

Tuva og Elisabeth

Tuva and Elisabeth met when they both started dancing lindy hop in 2015 at Bårdar Swing Club in Oslo. Since then, Lindy Hop has been a passion of theirs, and not long after they started instructing at the club.

They are committed to respecting history and spreading knowledge about the background of the amazing Lindy Hop dance. Through being active dancers and instructors, they have experience in conveying the dance both practically and theoretically.

They have also participated in workshops around the world, both at classes and in competitions. They will open VSN with a class about basic rhythms, what they can be used for and how to be responsible for good movement in your own role.



Linga & Andreas

Linda and Andreas

Once in 2000-and-long-ago Andreas started dancing swing in Trondheim. After having danced some different styles he ended up with Lindy Hop and started competing. At about the same time, Linda found her way into Bårdar Swing Club in Oslo. All spare time was dedicated to either dancing or teaching dance, and all holidays were filled with workshops all around around Europe. In 2012 Linda and Andreas became training-partners in the show group Norweegies. More travelling and more shows followed, while at the same time teaching both Lindy Hop and Balboa in BSC. Two kids and a pandemic later they have settled in Trondheim, looking forward to spread their joy of dancing!

Linda and Andreas’s class is dedicated to variations of a classic move that all Lindy Hoppers should know!

Thanks to our sponsors!

You mean the world to us..

Nidaros Cathedral

Nidaros Cathedral is a Church of Norway located in the city of Trondheim. Built over the burial site of Saint Olav, the king of Norway in the 11th century, who became the patron saint of the nation. It was built from 1070 to 1300, and designated as the cathedral for the Diocese of Nidaros in 1152. After the Protestant Reformation, it was taken from the Roman Catholics by the Lutheran Church in 1537. It is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world.
