Tonight, we head out for our final vacation of 2019, and I’m in a great mood! Therefore, I thought something extra fun was in order.

Recently, some wonderful slow Lindy dancing popped up on my feed (thanks Deege!). It sent me down the swing dance rabbit hole once again, and that’s how I came across Nils Andren & Bianca Locatelli. The dancing pair are tons of fun, and I will bet you can’t keep still while watching. I certainly couldn’t!

In addition to cutting a mean rug themselves, the pair teach swing techniques all over Europe. Their classes include Boogie Woogie, Salsa, Lindy Hop, and the Swedish bugg. They make me want to go take a class (right after having my knees and hips replaced)!

You can follow the energetic, fun Nils & Bianca on their website and on Facebook.

  1. Lindy hop is always fun to watch because it is so upbeat and full of big movements. I had a colleague, back in the 1990s, who was big into lindy hop dancing and in fact used to dress in 1940s style and her home was almost all 1940s style too – though she did have modern technology.

  3. My granddaughter started in college but they went on after collete, teaching and dancing the ‘Big Band’ music which included all of the ‘swing’ dances. At the time, 1960,, we didn’t have TV etc. so Friday night we went dancing at a local hall in St. Louis. Everybody put in 0.50 cents or even a whole dollar and at the end of the night we had a dance off. The best couple got the pot of money after the event took their share. Those were the days. Nobody killed anybody. No drugs, it was a real fun life back than. I miss it today. Hal
