Airsteps


Two days of this, the second one hungover took its toll. And here we go again.

I like the feeling of being in secong gear that i have missed for some time.

Guess how your arms and legs feels after hours of this after an untrained winter?

“It dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing” holds true in Lindy. Without that “oumph”

or attitude it becomes more like Swedish Bugg or Leroc

(witch is fine…but other dances with characters of their own)

Above couple shows swing / Charleston attitude. I sometimes wonder if instructors shouldnt start with letting the pupils snap their fingers and walk around with an attitude instead of beginning with basic steps.

Imagine Paso Doble or Tango without any character. The same is true for Lindy.

Without it, dancing is just walking funny to music.
