Calle Johansson, one of the most beloved Lindy Hoppers in the world, needs our help! We are garnering support to give something back to him in his time of need.

Do you know Calle Johansson? Even if you don’t, you actually do! His influence on the Lindy Hop community has been extensive and has surely touched you in some way. 

Calle is a truly loving and generous person. He is the original Herrang Dance Camp “allt i allo” and for many years, in the early days of Herrang, Calle was the sole "reception" and everything-and-anything worker. The Herrang Dance Camp wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for all of his years of work.

Calle has always been the most generous person and he is one of the main people to have shaped the culture of the Lindy Hop world into a true community where people share and help one another. He has hosted countless stranded Lindy Hoppers in his home over the years; he set a standard for Lindy Hoppers to open their homes to fellow dancers. He is also the originator of the Mission Impossible team and Team Denny’s… “There’s gonna be some rock n’ roll here tonight!” You will probably recognize Calle best as the ladies man who serenades everyone with Elvis songs with his guitar, sunglasses and leather jacket.

Calle’s mother suffered a stroke in 2012 and since that time, he has dedicated himself to helping her. 

We are now revealing the full details of the tragic story here:
