Looks like it Pygmalion!! Up for the challenge? I'm willing to give swing a go even though it's kind of getting hazy for me, as I discovered when I showed some basic ECS moves to a couple on Friday night! Wouldn't hurt to refresh swing in my mind, I guess.
Look who's talking my dear. and where have you been?
I check in (lurking) two or three times a day and post as moved to...
I've been taking a lot of dance classes (something like 26 in January AND a Frankie Manning weekend) and taking care of my feet and working really hard with a business coach which is no big deal just affecting every single aspect of my life. One of the things I'm learning is time management and a possible result of that is being more careful about my time (duh). So when I post here maybe it'll be the things I really want to say and less frivolous stuff...Who knows?
I've also been present to my mother's and my daughter's health crises which take time and energy.
SO...I'm here and I'm dancing (although this is day three of four days off) and my life is very rich and swing is everything and I think I'll even say a word or two about Carolina Shag next.
Who knows? After this ramble, you all might be glad to hear less from me for a while!
Hello! I'm really new to swing dancing, but I'm starting to get hooked. I've been reading some of the posts in this forum lately, so I decided to go ahead and jump in.
I'm bummed that tomorrow I have to chaperone a junior high dance, rather than going out swing dancing. But I think I'm going to start regular lessons on Saturday, so that should be fun.
I follow. I enjoy East Cost and West Coast swing, and I've done a bit of salsa too, and would like to learn more. But since I got a taste of Lindy at the Sacramento Swing Dance Festival last September, I've decided that it's probably my favorite.
Well, I hadn't found a place to dance in Phoenix yet. Then, when I was online, I read that Frankie Manning would be teaching in Sacramento. So I decided to take a few days off, fly to Sacramento, and check it out. I love to travel, and I love going new places by myself. That's where I took my first Lindy lesson; I went to three of Frankie's four classes (I was so exhausted after my last lesson Sunday morning that I went back to the hotel and collapsed till 4:00, then went out dancing again that night!) It was so much fun, and I met such wonderful people! That's what really got me interested in Lindy...I hope to get back out to Sacramento for the festival next year!
See www.azswingnetwork.com and you'll find your way to some great lindy hoppers and good dance venues (give Dabney and Binky my love; I found them to be very warm and welcoming to an out-of-town newbie).
Meantime, we'll keep the scene going in Sacramento until you can get back to visit.
