    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    sure. 40s-50s jitterbug/jive/dean collins style lindy...whatever you want to call it as different subcliques all have their own term. Also a bit of 40s balboa, bit of collegiate shag. Basically anything in the swing category.

    Also love dancing to motown/60s R&B/northern soul....

    classic Dean Collins and his partner Jewel McGowan dancing in their heyday

    Jean Veloz from "swing fever"...seems every gal learning to jitterbug copied her style at some point. One of the most famous swing dance scenes called "2 boys and one girl"

    My favorite vintage dancer, Gil Brady..seen here doing his thing in "Don't Knock the Rock" which has my singlemost favorite dance scene

    The disco folks all dressed up
    Like they's fit to kill
    I walk on in and see 'em there
    Gonna give them all a thrill

    When they sees me comin'
    They all steps aside
    They has a fit while I commit
    My social suicide

    a few years ago, a friend of mine had a party with music from the years we were growing up, and all the attendees were basically middle aged folk. we had ablast - danced a great deal, without having to worry about the crappy music that kids listen to (although I believe that music now is crap, I wrote that tonge in cheek) and without having to worry about looking like fools, because we all did. it was a blast. given the opportunity, I would do that every week .

    Can you dance? And do you?

    Yes, fox trot, standard tango, waltz, swing.

    Do I? It's been ages and my saying I can is probably overstatement at this point. Would love to learn the quick step and Argentine tango.

    yes, i'd like to think i can dance. been doing Lindy for about 7.5 years and Balboa for 7 years.

    yeah, as the posts show, there's a lot of people that poke fun at dancing and of course there's always the "if you like to dance, you must be gay" but from a social perspective, i've learned a lot about myself through dance. believe me, i had no idea that fresh breath was such a big deal before i started dancing. besides, dancing is just fun.

    i also applaud those that making dancing their craft since it's hard work with virtually no chance of the riches and fame that come with other disciplines like sports, acting, etc.
