Seriously, you should “like” the Wandering & Pondering Facebook Page. Even if you’re not on Facebook yet, you should join just to catch up with that page because I’m lacking in the time for long form blog posts right now, and I already put up six links on the Facebook site. I should have had time last weekend, but I made the mistake of hanging out with Andrew Thigpen in Baltimore last weekend. These two things that are dangerous by themselves, but when combined they become combustible. Let’s just say that line dancing and copious amounts of bacon were involved. Greasy good times were had by all.
Anyway, my issue right now is that I have a few big ideas I want to tie together and the recent “Live to Dance” and Lone Star Championships have provided me with some good framing devices. I just don’t have the time to make it all coherent.
I think I’ll probably break it up into sections, and hopefully I’ll talk a bit about the Lone Star Championships by next week. Until then I thought I’d point out Jo Hoffberg’s dance with Nick Williams in the Invitational Jack & Jill of that event.
Like the Nina and Jeremy video I posted a couple of weeks ago, I thought it would be fun to show this old school video of Jo & Nick drawing each other in the first Champions Jack & Jill at the American Lindy Hop Championships in 2002.
As you can see we’ve all come a long way since then. I’m just glad to see that they’ve buckled down to take their dancing more seriously.
