Above: Masters at work.
Last stop. My top favorites will go up some time next week after I get home. Until then, I wish everyone a Happy New Year!!
Laura Keat & Jeremy Otth vs. Nelle Cherry & Adam Speen - Eastern Balboa Championships 2009 Open Classic Finals
Pay attention to the all skate at the end. This is usually the least interesting part of a dance contest because there’s too much going on to focus on any one thing especially on video. However this contest is remarkable for the way Laura and Dexter dominate the all skate in a way I’ve never seen a single couple do in any dance competition.
Evita Arce - Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown 2010 Solo Blues finals
In contrast to the last video, check out how the spotlight, the video quality, and the camera angle cranks up the drama for those of us that weren’t there. Then check out Shawn Hershey towards the end go completely outside the box and bringing down the house with him.
Lone Star Championships 2010 Strictly Blues Finals
Good live music makes any contest awesome.
