Just for funsies, I got together with my dear friend Liz to shoot a freestyle lindy hop dance video this weekend. We agreed on a chill, bouncy song to dance to, a mashup of ”Lovely Day” by Bill Withers and ”Good as Hell” by Lizzo, performed by the band Pomplamoose. And we found three gorgeous spots to shoot at: Lafayette Park, the Marina, and Fort Mason. The rest was just dance magic.
I love dancing with Liz, who loves to both lead and follow lindy hop. I’m hella rusty at both, to be honest, but decided to just go for it anyway. We always have a good rapport as dance partners, which I hoped would translate into a decent video.
Is it my finest dancing? Not really. But does it capture me having fun dancing with my friend? Yes! So mission accomplished.
I hope you enjoy this as much as Liz and I enjoyed making it.
