Ahhh, what would the 40's be like without swing music? I hope you enjoy some of the clips below. I'm inspired by swing music and dance. I wish there were places you could go to nowadays that are hip and full of life like this:) Please check out "Hooked On Swing Dancing". Really great look at vintage swing dancing (YouTube video below)!
There was a great movie that came out in 1993, Swing Kids. If you haven't seen it, it is a great period flick with some awesome dancing. I remember waiting for this to come out and being blown away by the soundtrack. I just pulled out my old CD this morning and have been jamming to the tunes:) I can't believe I didn't have this on my itunes! The CD is phenomenal I recommend getting it. I'm going to re-watch Swing Kids. I haven't seen this movie in years so I'm looking forward to looking to seeing the period outfits and backdrops:) I just picked up the DVD version of this movie.
I hope you enjoy and listen to some of these great YouTube clips.
