I love dancing so much but I can’t get over how hard Swing/Lindy is to learn compared to Rockabilly. I really struggle with the foot work as its so different.
Jakk and I are onto our third class with SwingOut Sydney (same-sex Swing classes) and it’s finally starting to gel thank goodness. We love Swing music, and its so lovely to be able to dance to it.
Its nice to be in a class that you don’t have to worry that someone might be ‘weird’ about partnering up with a queer. I should point out that is a really rare occurance, and 99% of the people on the vintage/dance scene are fabulous, unfortunately you do encounter the 1% from time to time.
Here’s a little video of us last night if you want to have a chuckle! (and yep, i’m wearing Freddies Dungaree Dolls if you want to see what they look like on a bigger girl).
