Scott and Leah Go Swing Dancing

In spite of the bitter chill of December, I managed to get Leah out for a bit of swing dancing. As expected, she’s a natural, and by the end of the night was moving like Ginger Rogers. Live music and Thai food made it a fun evening all around.

Jazz in Washington Square Park

As Summer expires, we accept that there are fewer and fewer chances to wander outside and enjoy the City. With Rashan, freshly laid off from his job of nearly two years, we watched two rather bad movies, Jennifer’s Body and Surrogates. Then to the park, where a band later identified as The Loose Marbles played for a crowd of summery onlookers.

Sadly, I was partnerless, and unable to provide the folks with some swing-based entertainment.

Midsummer Night Swing

After years of saying “oh, I should have gone to that”, I actually went. To Lincoln Center, that is, for some outdoor swing dancing and fanfare with live music. Some old faces, many new ones. Who says swing dancing is out of style?

I’ll probably go again later this month, if not this week.
