matteom6:52pm: Hello everyone.  Just wanted to introduce myself - I'm Matt, and I started swing dancing pretty recently but I'm already hooked!  I wasn't sure when a friend asked if I wanted to go a couple weeks ago, but I really liked it when I went.  Looking into starting lindy lessons soon

lrswimrocket306:15pm: My best friends sweet 16th birthday is coming up and we are celebrating it on our "swing night" so i want to get a cake made that has a swing dancing theme. The only problem is, I can't seem to think up any good ideas for the designe on the cake, or any sweet sayings. If anybody could help me out with this that would be great. Thanks!

islemay2:47am: Hi all
How on earth are there not more people in this community? Guessing from the other swing communitys on LJ they seem to be mostly regenal. Does anyone know where I could rent more movies feturing swing? I looked on Netflix, but besides Swing Kids, they just had instruction vidios, and vidios of the old masters (while that is cool to, sometimes just a normal vidio is nice).

solidfoamsoul1:09pm: Put on your glasses...
I got into swing music back in the late 90s, just starting high school. You know, when it was suddenly popular again? My brother's prom even had a swing theme. He took lessons and rented a zoot suit. (Black with red pinstripes, if you're wondering.)

Just last night I watched "Swing Kids" with him and it completely dristracted him from the computer game he was playing. Robert Sean Leonard now owns me, but that's beside the point.

I recently fell back in love with the music again some time ago after seeing "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" and getting all fan girly about Lupin's choice of music for his lessons. And then being quite disappointed when it wasn't included in the sound track. My friend who had gone to the movie with me tag along to a thrift shop, where I procured a Benny Goodman and a Duke Ellington LP. Both in decent condition and only a buck each! I love thrift shops!

She also lifted a 24 dollar antique hat (40s style, maybe a bit later) there as a gift for me. Early Christmas, says she. And no tomatos were harmed during the making of that robbery.

You'll get that joke if you've seen "Swing Kids." And if you haven't, you should. Soundtrack ain't too bad, either.

Well, that's my intro. Thanks for listening. I hope I haven't wasted too much of your time.

Swing heil, and all that jazz. =P

This community seemed kind of quiet at first glance, but I figured I'd give it a try.

How did you guys get involved in swing dancing?
