Jakub Jakoubek & Emeline Rochefeuille

Originally from Czech Republic & Reunion Island, Jakub and Emeline took their first steps into the dance world at the age of 16 and 12, both starting with Ballroom Dancing (Latin, Standard & line-dancing).

After her arrival in France at the age of 18, as Em sought to start a new dance form, she bumped into a video of Jordan & Tatiana, and felt in love with WCS right away. Being trained by Maxence Martin gave her a solid knowledge that allowed her to grow in her own dancing and teaching. She acts in the WCS Community not only as a teacher, but also as a DJ and photographer.

Jakub’s dance world consists mainly from social dances such as Zouk, WCS or Salsa but there is also a part of solo or group Modern and Contemporary dances.

Their students suggested that they should partner up at the end of week-end, so they did
