Beantown Bounce - Bobby & Kate
Thanks again to my friend Heather Warner-Dubin for another great video suggestion. She recently had the time of her life at Beantown Camp and has been posting a ton of videos from the event.
This video features Bobby and Kate, who somehow just keep getting better. Since Lindy Hop is the focus for this blog I don't usually post Balboa videos, but Balboa is another love of mine and with so many Lindy Hoppers also dabbling in Balboa I thought it was appropriate. (Hmm, how many more times can I fit Balboa into a sentence?)
Is it odd that I find this performance refined, smooth, mature, and also cute at the same time? Maybe the cute comes from the blending of their personalities - Kate's calm, confident demeanor crossed with Bobby's excited grin and wide eyes.
I highly recommend taking a class with them if you get a chance. They're both very intelligent and clear instructors with a deep understanding of their profession. I also recommend reading Bobby's blog, Swungover. He's a wonderful writer who regularly presents very interesting insights about swing dancing and life in general.
