I’ve neglected to mention that I’m going to be competing at the International Lindy Hop Championships this August in DC. Myself, along with a group of 15 other dancers, will be doing a more competition-friendly version of this award-winning performance at ILHC! We’ll be entering in the Cabaret Division, where a lot of the
wackier more eclectic performances take place (i.e. hip-hop, disco, african dance, etc).
I’m not sure exactly why I’m doing this. Perhaps because my friend Lilieblue is the choreographer. Or maybe it’s because I was already planning on going to ILHC. Or maybe because I’m just a big ham.
The competition at ILHC is expected to be fierce, so winning is not really our goal. I’m not even sure how they judge the cabaret division. I just want us to do a bad ass, crowd-pleasing performance.
