DCLX Swing dancing in Dupont

I went to a single DCLX event this last weekend. Swing dancing (or probably dancing of any kind) on concrete is not fun to the feet or the ankles.

I’m sure my footwork was a bit off, but I had to adjust some to dancing with more people that didn’t necessarily know the proper footwork. I did a lot of experimenting with improvising various turns and grabbing the opposite hand from the usual connections.

The event was a blast and I saw a lot of classmates from the Hill Center, Capitol Hill classes.

I failed to get any pictures or video this week, sadly. I should have at least taken a shot of Dupont Circle with the small horde of people dancing. Sometimes, you fail.

On a slight side note, I also danced a whole bunch at my friend’s wedding on Friday. Most of the people I danced with had never done any swing dancing in their life. I told them all two things, keep your feet moving and follow my lead. Just that. After saying those two things I got people to do everything just short of Charleston. Sadly, couldn’t do my favorite move, but I got to tear up the dance floor all night, doing all kinds of fun things.
