Amalan Thiyagarajah

Always looking for a form of self-expression that would fit his personality, Amalan has dabbled in various art forms. On a night in 2012, Amalan was introduced to the world of swing dancing at a small bar known as “Le Petit Medley”. The discovery of this dance ignited a flame of passion that has driven him up to this day. Following this desire, Amalan joined SAF Réservistes, Rhythm Troopers, and Jazz Division in order to perfect his skills. His positive energy and smile are as contagious as his passion for Lindy Hop.
