It’s been a while…

I meant to write about Lindyfest a few weeks ago and now I don’t remember what I wanted to say about it. I do remember having an amazing time, and having a few dance-revelations and awakenings. Sorry I’m not able to get more specific, because it’s really just boiling down to a new “feeling” I’m […]

Lone Star Championships 2011

Man, what a way to get the new year rollin’!  This was my second Lone Star Championships ever, and it was sooo good! It was going to be tough to beat last year’s awesomeness but Scott and Tena somehow pulled it off. Ok… where do I begin… Thank you’s: — My houseguests (Gina, Breanna, Mary, […]

Lindy Focus IX!

Ok…. this is a temporary post….. most likely…. that is, if I don’t get lazy. It’s the last night of Lindy Focus — aka, New Year’s Eve/Morning … 7:35am precisely. I’m exhausted but still wired from all the dancing tonight and how much fun I’ve been having. And I just couldn’t keep it to myself. […]

Stompology 5

Every year, I write my words or praise over Stompology… and this year is no different. Why?  A bunch of reasons: 1. Rochester. I spent 6 years of my life there and made some really great friends. All of whom I get to see again when I go back. It feels like going home. 2. […]

My First Lindyfest

Most people were pretty surprised when I told them that this was my first ever Lindyfest. The event has been around for many years, is widely loved,  and I tend to travel a decent amount. How did I never attend before?!  It was either too far away, and therefore, too expensive to get to, or […]

Lone Star Championships

My body still aches from this weekend. Man, Tena and Scott threw one hell of an event. Where should I begin with my praise? The music? So awesome! The bands were two different configurations of local Austin musicians, both which included Ryan Gould, John Doyle and Oliver Steck. I feel so lucky to be able […]

12th Annual Steven & Virginie in ROC

Ok, so I’m currently at the airport, it’s 5am, and haven’t yet slept tonight. This might be kinda nonsensical but I’m willing to take my chances. I made the trip to Rochester this weekend for what may as well be considered Lindy Hop Church. Steven & Virginie’s workshop in Rochester has always left me bursting […]

ULHS

All I can say is …..      that’s right. I’m speechless. ULHS  was held in New Orleans this year. It was my first time there and I had a blast. New Orleans is a wild city. I had always wondered about going to Mardis Gras, but after seeing what Bourbon Street is like on a regular […]

Hot Rhythm Ball Recap Video

One thing I forgot to explain is that the dance I attended, Hot Rhythm Ball, was in essence a one-night event advertisement for a dance weekend the organizers are planning to put on next year — Hot Rhythm Holiday Their site contains a video recap of the evening:

Hot Rhythm Ball

Last night Brooks and I decided to take a break from unpacking and go to this dance that we had heard was happening. It didn’t seem like it would be a huge event or anything (and it wasn’t), but it wasn’t a regularly scheduled Austin dance either. We had heard the band would be good […]
