Blog Updates for West Coast Swing and Hustle
2010 - Year in Review
The Competitive Crew:
2010 saw the start of the competitive crew. It was my way to prepare of some members of our group the spring-time events. We started with a modified ballet barre for warm-up, did some jazz across-the-floors to dance away the inhibitions, and ended with some West Coast Swing drills.
26 dancers participated in the Hustle & West Coast Swing Medley at the Crystal Theater in Norwalk, CT. That's a real achievement. Most people don't have any idea what type of preparation, dedication and sheer cajones it takes to step on stage and give it your best shot. I'm so proud of the people who stepped up to the plate.
Single in CT?
As I'm writing this, we've just passed the Thanksgiving 2010 Holiday. That means that many more people are about to be single according to a Facebook study. This study indicates that there is a significant spike in break-ups in the weeks leading up to 2 weeks before Christmas.
So if you're in a relationship, it's either time to put on your parachute or prepare to buy your significant other a gift for the holidays. If you happen to be one of the many singles out there, this might be an excellent moment to meet someone new as many relationships are purged.
Here's an idea that might increase your romantic chances whether it's for the holiday season or any other time of year: Partner Dancing. That's right!! Dancing with someone, a partner. Think of it as speed dating plus touching.
