Myles here for another edition of TBT. Here is one of my favorite routines we've ever done and our favorite performance of it because of the event. This was at #CanadianSwingChampionships in Montreal (COMING UP MAY 17-20!) which is the ultimate crossover event in the world. 5 styles of Swing dance and most dancers crossover... So this routine was perfect for that audience - the shoes thrown at the end are a gesture of deep respect, so we were honoured. The routine itself is the most crossover we've done. I love dancing Balboa and Lindy hop and the song just begged for it. We discovered the song while teaching in Ukraine: we saw the music video on a tv and begged them to turn the sound on to find out what they were doing Charleston and Lindy to. As soon as I heard it, I looked at Tessa, she looked back at me and said "Yep, let's do it". Choreo started the next day!
