I'll be having to do lindy hop in the following environment: I hate the song. It's 190 bpm. I'll be doing this with a partner who has never learned lindy hop, so she's really gonna hate this at 190 bpm. The director says she's wanting "a lot of people on stage" for this. I'm the only one who knows lindy hop, so I guess I will be hidden by "a lot of people on stage" doing I don't know what... at 190 bpm! Rehearsal is supposed to start the beginning of January with a February 22 show date. I've been trying to get them to start studying lindy hop since April or somewhere around there, shortly after Feb this year. No one has lifted a finger. I hope they don't expect me to give them a freebie crash course now. I'm not willing to have hacks go on stage with the word out that I'm who taught them how to do whatever crappy thing they end up doing. I don't want to be a teacher! Same set of conditions applies to hustle except the song is good for hustle... "a lot of people on stage", none of them know hustle, I'll be with a partner who doesn't know hustle. I want to find a way to have a positive attitude about this.
