I'm honored and delighted to see my friend Nina Galicheva and me on the banner of the 2011 Midsummer Night Swing website! That's a great shot of Nina and I competing in last year's MSNS dance contest, which was a lot of fun. I'm also in the promo video right at the end dipping the lovely Emily V.
For those that don't know, Midsummer Night Swing is Lincoln Center's summer series of outdoor dance concerts that take place on their lovely Damrosch Plaza. It's one of the best things about summer in New York City. Seeing the calendar is bittersweet for me, since I'm no longer in New York.
Check out the killer lineup of bands they have for this season, including:
- June 27: Jonathan Stout Orchestra and Hilary Alexander (swing)
- June 28: Soul Train party with Pee Wee Ellis and Fred Wesley (soul)
- July 6: The Hot Club of Cowtown (country swing)
- July 8: Tribute to Ralph Mercado (salsa)
- July 14: Caravan Palace (electro-swing from Paris!)
