ILHC 2011 Showcase - Michael Darigol & Brittany Johnson
Funny enough, this is probably going to be the thing I remember most from ILHC. Yes, many, many wonderful things happened: Jo’s charismatic performance during the solo Charleston competition, Max & Annie’s spectacular new routine (I’ll post that tomorrow), NYC’s own face-meltingly awesome Rockefeller Riot team performance, and a Balti-querque-delphia party that rocked the hotel.
But this. The showcase of infinite swing-outs. Forever in my mind.
ILHC 2011 - Champions Final Jam
Hot off the presses via Patrick & Nastasha (grateful to Patrick for stopping me from sitting on a big puddle of ice water during one of the ILHC Lindy Enlightenment Dialogue talks). Skye & Frida won big this year (Frida won every competition she participated in, I believe). Seeing the performers in this video, you pretty much already know who’s going to make the top 3 couples. So I find myself watching the other couples even more to see the incredible things they also pull off. Pontus Persson and Isabella Gregorio are particularly fun to watch.
Dear Tumblr. Karen says ‘hi.’ Also: she has a challenge for us…
So… Karen wants us to get to 30,000 followers.
(Ok, so how the roranicus pondicus are we going to get to 30,000 followers? We need your help so send us your ideas.)
European Swing Dance Championships (2011) - Max Pitruzzella & Frida Segerdahl, Invitational Jack & Jill
Love this performance. Two of Lindy’s strongest dancers finally paired together in a Jack & Jill. If anyone can ID the song, it would be greatly appreciated. (I know the song title is “Undecided” but if you know the band, that’d be great).
Prequel video for the second half of season 6. Wheee! (via doctorwho)
