In September I filmed a music video in Buenos Aires, with Juan Villafane, Dax Hock and Sarah Breck. The song is called Ula Ula, the band is Illya Kuryaki & The Valderramas, and the film was directed by Hernan Corera. We shot in an enormous green screen studio, with a colourful bunch of characters, as you can see…
Damn, I just realized how lame I am. I didn’t blog about the International Lindy Hop Championships at all!! Well, actually I did post up some photos over at SwingFashionista.com, but that’s not what I’m talking about…

My burlesque company in Australia, Sugar Blue Burlesque, has just released a series of five instructional DVDs, including a 3-volume Burlesque series (featuring myself, plus the other Sugar Blue Burlesque instructors!), as well as my very own “1920s Charleston & Other Vintage Jazz Dances” DVD.
The Charleston DVD includes vernacular jazz and blues dancing, as well as, of course, 1920s Charleston, and has the fundamentals as well as advanced steps.
The DVDs are available for purchase online at the Sugar Blue Burlesque website for $30.00 each, and that’s Australian dollars, so take advantage of the exchange rate! Right now, that’s only US$25, or €18 Euros, or £15 GBP! Shipping is available worldwide.
