Swing Dance - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 13 August 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

For my new series I am at the Canberrang Swing Dance Festival. It featured mostly ticketed events over a weekend. However, there was also a free public event to showcase the energetic style of Swing Dance. A 20 piece jazz Big Band was there to provide live music. I hope you can join me for this series!

@grouser: Thanks, grouser. Not sure about the beat - but Lindy Hop and Charleston are among the Swing Dance styles.

Great festive expressions captured on these dancers' faces!! Although one looks like he's trying to avoid stepping on his partner's feet. :-)
