Swing Dance, this is why …

There are many kinds of dances, but all those requiring the participation of the two sexes have two characteristics in common: they are conspicuously innocent, and warmly loved by the vicious. ~ Ambrose Bierce

We, and my we I mean my swing band, love our dancers. When they show up, the gig seems that much more worthy. Every eye is upon them, celebrating the skill and sensuous nature of their moves.

These two showed up for a charity gig that we were playing for. It’s our annual Jumpin’ Jive to Thrive event and boy howdy can these folks dance.

Note the Zoot suit, you heard me … a ZOOT SUIT RIOT! Photo credit to our band photographer and former lead alto sax Mark Gladding. Enjoy.
