Ahhh Tucson, I am back from my dance shenanigans!
I think this was the 14th year that Camp Hollywood has run? It is driving distance! I am not sure why other Tucson people didn't come (except for you Rob). Anyways...
This is the second year in a row that Howard and I have gone. Good god, the music ROCKED this year. It was definitely better than last year. Of course this is largely due to Jonathan Stout, but the icing on the cake was the Careless Lovers, you know, the Black Coffee peeps. Yeah, late night live music rocked. Anyways, enough gushing about music. Really, there is nothing more joyful for me that swingin' music. It is definitely the reason why I dance.
Plus, the competitions were fun to watch! We made Bal finals. Good god I was terrified, but psyched at the same time. Great experience and now we are fired up to get better. I also made JnJ finals, which of course I blew big time. But still, it felt good to make finals. Bottom line, we had a blast. Plus, I love watching comps! Check out Morgan and Emily's awesome Mario NES homage. Super creative and it sparked nostalgia from everybody. I loved it!
Also, check out Alice and Peter! So creative and cute. Story telling in choreography at its best.
Oh, this video is for Bill Morse! Haha, lindy hoppers are multiplying!!!
Anyways, there are a ton of other videos on Youtube if you are interested. Browse at your discretion.
Not only did I get to dance all weekend and hang out with super awesome friends (thanks to my roomies Debra and Booty!), but I made it up to SF to dance. Great times in CA. :)
Anyhow, I am super pumped to do another swing event. We might be going to ULHS, we shall see.
Swing out and prosper!
PS Tucson, get ready, a Bal venue is the works :)
