My original intention when I started my Lindy Hop paper a couple of years ago was to talk about some of my favorite routines and why I liked them. Circumstances led me in a slightly different direction which ended up becoming the “Artisry In Rhythm” paper that I’m now posting bit by bit. The routine that I’m going to talk about was done by Naomi Uyama and Matt Smiley both originally from the Washington, DC area. They performed a routine to Artie Shaw’s “Frenesi” at the 2001 American Lindy Hop championships.
First real blog post, a review of the dance hosted by The Jam Cellar in the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park last night with The Brooks Tegler Big Band.
