Swing Dancing!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After my chaotic Fashion Week, I dove right back into my usual busy life. My boyfriend & I went to Swing 46 last Friday night, along with his dad and aunt - where we met up with their neighbors Rezana & Eddie. Rezana & Eddie taught us how to swing dance (they teach there every Friday at 8PM and it's $12 at the door if you mention them). They both work closely with us or anyone who's interested for about an hour. After, another guy comes to teach and you're welcome to learn from him as well (no additional price).

Then a live band comes on stage for everyone to enjoy their rest of the night. If you're more of a wallflower, you're also welcome to have drinks or dinner & absorb the atmosphere :)

Having no dance experience at all (other than taking tap dance when I was a toddler), I think I did okay. Haha, I'm certainly not that great yet but we plan on going weekly for more lessons.
