A place full of swingin' beats, vintage clothes, cool moves, smooth shoes, and wooden floors.
My swing group of friends never really changes- the larger of the two groups is my swing team that I’m now semi-coaching. But the core group is actually the 4 friends I have that go out with me regularly to social dance.
I do have to add- since I’ve become a regular at my dance place there are several leads & follows I’m always chatting up on my break songs so that group may be changing quickly.
You would think that since I’ve done so many shows and performances with my group that I would love that but actually I have a Cinderella story of sorts that is my favorite thus far- I caught a lead and asked him to dance and had an amazing time dancing and it was like we were FLOATING. Ugh I love that feeling when you dance with a lead and the world melts away and it seems as though every move you make is completely planned fits the music perfectly. Thus that is my favorite memory so far.
Day 11: Favorite song(s) to dance to
Right now I’m really into the 50’s Sock Hop Swing music and a lot of the 90’s revival bands. So if I had pick one… This is what I would pick.
I have yet to be at a full weekend workshop but if I had to pick a workshop I enjoyed I would have to say the small workshop I had with Peter Flahiff was the most helpful & eye opening I’ve been to so far. It was all about fundamentals of a swing out and how to make it perfect.
