It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing

Music should either move your feet or move your heart.

Today’s been a long day because of work and school. Tomorrow will be a very different kind of long day because of a work-related event — the very important Mental Health Networking Event that will be going on in Ladha (4-6 pm) — and some serious chilling out in the form of happy feet.

UBC Swing Kids are coming back this term with a free Welcome Back Dance in the SUB Party Room tomorrow, including free lessons!

7-8 pm: West Coast Swing beginner’s lesson
8-9 pm: Lindy Hop beginner’s lesson
9-11 pm: Social dancing! Yay!

Now there’s nothing like actually seeing a dance to get a glimmer of what it’s like. Lucky for us, we have YouTube. Check out the crazy Lindy Hop and improvised West Coast Swing (my personal favourite).

A note on the instructors for WCS: Emlyn and Kaedra are fantastic teachers. They’re clear, funny, and teach at a good pace that challenges everyone without leaving anyone behind. If they’re teaching tomorrow, I can guarantee it’ll be enjoyable. Heck, it’s going to be grand regardless of who’s teaching tomorrow — free dancing!

Bring yourself, your friends or clueless passers-by, it really doesn’t matter. See you there!
