Incredible video, I love cool jazz and crazy swing dancing :) Your videos always make me wish I didn't have two left feet...

Glad you enjoyed it, I'd love to learn how to swing dance properly someday. I know how to jive, but not swing, swing is much more smooth and freestyle than jive.
May be you just think you have two left feet....who knows ;)

I always wished I knew the 20's dances, like the jitterbug and the cakewalk. What a lovely career for you, to be a dancer and a dance teacher.

I love the 20's dances too, I also would love to learn Charleston :)
Thanks Tara!
