A Little Swing Dance, Anyone?

I started swing dance lessons last week. So far I've learned four basic steps and how to turn.

Do you think I'll ever be as good as these people? This is Lindy Hop, a fast and difficult form of swing. This video is of from the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown from a few years ago and it's been viewed over 2.6 million times on YouTube.

Swing is great. I like East Coast a lot better than West Coast, but they'll likely teach you both. Lindy Hop, while really fun, burns energy too fast for me. Two dances and I have to sit down for the next six.

I'm sure you'll be doing that after another three or four lessons. I was a tap dancer, very very briefly.
