Let The 20s Roar (Part 1)

Who is excited about the Electro Swing Soiree happening tonight??  THIS GIRL!  To celebrate the release of the new "The Great Gatsby" movie (see the trailer at the bottom of this post), the venue where I swing dance every week is hosting parties tonight and tomorrow in grand style!  There will be photos of course, and I've done a tutorial/process of how I did my costume.  YES, I'm going in costume.  You knew it was only a matter of time before I got something 1920s together! :D :D :D
But you can't see that yet!  Not until I have danced until I drop, recovered, and uploaded photos of everything.

But here's a clip of some Electro Swing to keep you happy until then.  It's a half hour long, so you can pick however much you want to hear, but I promise it's catchy!  Just let it play in the background as you clean the house or whatever and it makes whatever you're doing more fun x 100! :)
So much Lindy Hopping will be happening in the next 5 or 6 hours... :)

The Great Gatsby Movie:


  1. You SWING DANCE?? Oh man, I am so jealous. I only *wish* they did something like that near me, I'd be there with bells on.
    Possibly literally.
    I'm so excited for Gatsby too! It's not out over here yet, another week or two I think. I have reread it (on audiobook) just recently to set the scene ;)

  2. p.s. sorry I hit send before I was finish, d'oh. Please post photos! Can't wait to see your costume! xxx

    1. I've been swing dancing on and off for the better part of 10 years now! But not often enough to get and GOOD at it, until this year. Now, depending on a lot of other things happening in my life, I may be able to attend more classes/lessons/workshops/whathaveyou and finally be able to match some of the AMAZING leads that I've met in the last year. Love it so much! :)

  3. Sounds like fun! Can't wait to see piccies :)
