Hey Have you seen those Facebook memes that go, "Don't say, 'I'm quarantined' That's boring! Say, 'I've taken a vow of solitude to protect to my village!' That makes it sound fun and mysterious. And it could also imply you're wearing a sword." I like that idea, so ... Welcome to Prohibition! They were prohibited from drinking in the 1920's, and we're prohibited from dancing in the 2020's! We wanted the 20's, and we got it. But as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for. People weren't allowed to drink during the 1920's, so what did they do? They had secret Speakeasy parties and drank and danced to their hearts content! We can no longer dance in public with other people, so what do we do? We dance online! Swing dancers like to study the culture and events of the vintage era, not just the dancing. So this is a chance to reflect on what it really felt like to live in the 1920's and to find out why they turned to dancing in order to have fun. And that isn't even mentioning the other parallels between the two 20's such as the pandemics and the recessions. Swingtopia Dance will have our first online class tonight at 6:30pm! Check out the details below. Stay tuned for more online classes ... As ever ... Swing on! Azza
