National Jitterbug Championships 2012: 1st Place!

Sharon & Juan win National Jitterbug Championships

Here is our new Classic Lindy Hop routine, to Buddy Johnson’s song Shufflin’ & Rollin’! We performed it for the first time at Camp Hollywood in Los Angeles on 28th July 2012 in the Showcase division at the National Jitterbug Championships, and won 1st place!

A million thanks to my wonderful dance partner Juan, I love you! We won trophies aaaaand…. jackets! I’ve never had a winners jacket before 🙂

Provence Swing Festival and our new routine!

I’m recovering now from the charming Provence Swing Festival, in France. Here’s two videos – first, of our brand new Lindy Classic routine, and second, of a short feather fan dance I did. The classic routine is to Scram, by Fats Waller. Enjoy!
