Ohhhhh we are all still on a high from the party last night! It was AWESOME
and i don't say this just because me and Mark organized it, but because
it was really great! We have never seen in a free gathering so many personalities
from the London's Swing scene! Not only we had our now regular DJ Ronnie
Slide (and what a great dancer too), not only we had our friend Martin
from Swingland playing a dj guest set (as DJ Smartie), not only we had
the pleasure to see once again shaking his bum Jerome Travolta, Richard
from LSDS but we had for the first time ever our Queen of Lindy Julie
Oram! And if the above wasnt enough, we hosted the birthday celebrations
and huuuge cake for Christy from Lindy Circle. Dan and their crew had
organized a beauty pageant style surprise for her, so this added to the
fun. Last but not least, amazing teacher Bill Borgida was there too, having
completed a full on intensive teaching weekend with Dan and Christy...
What can we say? Who was there (and there were plenty!) enjoyed the evening...music,
classics and not so classic, dances, guest stars, sparkles and mad closing
time with the now 'usual' crazy hour. With also the help of Bill's selection
we danced the chicken song (not sure the name in english in italian it
was 'ballo dei qua qua'!). We had jam session, b'day dances, hip hop numbers,
and a massive shimsham led by the gotha of lindy hop.
Thanks to every one who was at the party, thanks to mark DJBitterjug,
thanks to Daisy and Liz and Sian for their constant support and the rest
of the Swing bunch, and the London lindy hoppers!
