A quick end of three-parter post of 2009 in review. This time, its about some of my favourite videos the past year. The first two parts were in pictures. :)
Here are a few pictures from the mini photo shoot I did with Roslyn, a phenomenal violinist and Toronto swing dancer. Roslyn, used to a be a member of the now defunct swing troupe “The Hot 6″ last summer and was always the voice of reason and calmness :)
Solo charleston. How I fear and adore you at the same time. Every time I think I have you figured out, that we have finally come to an understanding, you kick (get it?) me down a couple of notches. As if to remind me that I still have much, much more to learn.
Had a great turn out at the first Yonge and Bloor Blues event and you could say it was a bit of success. We had about sixty to seventy people throughout the course of the event. This by itself is not a lot of people compared to our local lindy hop saturday night dance (which tops over a hundred guests) but we were pleasantly surprised by the turn out.
What I was really most ecstatic about was the fact that the majority of people came out to Kevin and Brooke’s drop-in beginner blues class and stuck around for the dancing. New people being introduced to blues dancing from the beginning instead of being an after band dance at Dovercourt or at the pubs. Wowzee crazee?
Few selected songs that I played while DJ’ing at Hamilton’s Hammer Hopper first dance this year.
