Swingdancing Under the Stars

Monday, August 09, 2010

At one of my favorite places in the city, Pier 54, was a special event. The George Gee Swing Band performed along with members of Dance! Manhattan, and united together to bring music & dance enthusiasts some swing dancing!

They had a free lesson beforehand for anyone who wanted to learn how to swing dance. My boyfriend & I wanted to go to learn a little bit, but we were a bit late since we had some halal food & chatted at the Thompson Cafe in SoHo. Then shortly after the lesson, the live band came on the stage for all of us to enjoy.

Many couples danced, and a bunch of spectators gathered. It even started to rain a bit, but that didn't stop anyone from dancing! (The rain thankfully went away after about 5 minutes)
Below, are 3 videos which I recorded from my Blackberry. These are the ones I've uploaded onto Facebook. The first is a group from Dance! Manhattan that performed for us for a bit. The second is a live singer adding onto the music. And the third is a sample of the scene & a bit of the George Gee Swing Band. Enjoy! :)
