This is a "danceography blog" from life-long social dancers and aspiring djs, event organizers and photographers - Randy Panté (Montreal) and Tien Le (Vancouver). We blog about our dance and travel adventures and tribulations, nerd out on photog techniques, and post about our favourite places to have a latte. On this site you will also find blues dancing information in Canada.
If you are looking to hire us for photography or videography purposes, you can get a hold of us through email - Randy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tien (email@example.com).
About the show – In the Swing du Businessman, discover the dances of the Roaring Twenties. A preoccupied businessman finds solace in a universe where jazz dances reign as kings: acrobatics, Charleston, Lindy Hop and Swing and more will dazzle you in this hour-long show! The Swing du Businessman is an homage to jazz and swing dances, of course, but also to silent films of the 20s and 30s, and to the comical genius of legends such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
About the venue – A former movie theater built during the 1920s, the Rialto Theater is the ideal place to get back to the Roaring Twenties!
Lots of blues action happening this month in Montreal:
