Swing Time Speakeasy Event!

Last Wednesday I attended this awesome Swing Time Speakeasy event.

It was so much fun that I plan to attend every Wednesday. It is located at the Bossonova Ballroom at 722 E Burnside and is just a quick hop from where I live. The event is $5.00 and you get a swing dance lesson, there is a live band with plenty of opportunites to get out and dance. There is also old time vaudville style entertainment. By the time you leave you feel as though you have taken a step back in time.

I do have to admit however that I am truly not a very good dancer (I just can not seem to get my feet co-ordinated with what my brain is telling them to do and the half of the time my brain is out to lunch and then my poor feet are just lost) but at least I am making an effort and having fun. I figure if I just keep coming back some of it has got to stick right? I do have to admit that swing dancing (and learning to swing dance) is out of my comfort zone but it is something I really want to learn how to do and the only way I will learn is to get involved and everybody has to start somewhere. Plus these Swing Time Events are just so much fun, I attended one of the other Wednesday night events a couple of weeks ago.

Here is a pic from just this past Wednesday night:

This sounds like a lot of fun. I might have to go eventually, even though I am no great mover haha.
