Holy smokes! This video of the lindy hop performance team 23 Skidoo really blows my mind. It’s from the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown in St Paul, Minnesota that took place last weekend. I find it a near perfect blend of athleticism, musicality, great lines, and high energy. In other words, totally bad ass. The judges at Ultimate clearly agreed with me: 23 Skidoo took first place, in a very competitive field.
You can’t really make out their fun outfits from the YouTube video. Here’s an amazing picture of the team taken by my friend Ryan.
I have got to go Ultimate next year!
