I'm so excited that swing dancing has come back en vogue for the younger generation. It's so much better than the dirty dancing of my era (that goes without saying!). Our area teens love to swing whenever they can. They're all learning, so it's fun for everybody.
Last weekend, we attended a 50's Sock Hop for area homeschooling teenagers. About 40 kids came.
Here are our teens, 16 and 14, dressed up for the 50's theme…
Tonight, we're driving 40 miles to another town to attend another swing dance, where the entrance fee is $5 and there is no drinking or smoking allowed. They teach lessons for an hour before opening the floor to a night of swinging. I haven't gone to this spot yet, so I can't wait!
Do you swing?
