Toronto Swings Better Than The Stars


Now that the Dancing of the Stars hoopla of John O'Hurley's win over Kelly Monaco is done with, we in Toronto can move on to better things.

For social dancers (like me), those better things come this weekend (09/23 - 09/25) in the form of a workshop on West Coast Swing hosted by the Toronto Swing Dance Society and run by dancers Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollman . Jordan and Tatiana did not make it on the TV vehicle So You Think You Can Dance, which to my mind is a positive endorsement given what I have seen on that program so far.

For the record, West Coast Swing looks nothing like the swing of the 30s and 40s as seen on those Gap ads as it is much funkier and slick. I look forward to strutting up the "slot" to do a "whip" across the dance floor this Saturday night.
