Here is a little more on David
So we got hold of David, sat her down, and grilled her on her love of the Vintage Dance Scene and all things Swing Jive and Vintage Dance. Here's what she had to say:
What is your favourite vintage dance style/s?
Definitely Swing Jive and Hollywood [smooth style] Lindy Hop. We encourage our students to dance this smooth style even as beginners.
Who is/are your favourite vintage or current dance music musician/band or singer?
There are many, Ray Collins Hot Club J.D McPherson, The Revolutionaires amongst others
What is your favourite vintage look/style?
Late 40's early 50's. More a question for the girls really!
If you were born in a vintage decade would it be 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's and why?
Oh to be dancing in the early 50's to the many American Rhythm & Blues artists!
What has been your bestest ever vintage dance event that you attended?
Again there's been a few.. I have very fond memories of my first Atomic, Rhythm Riot and Humdinger weekenders
Do you have a current favourite vintage dance event and why?
Mouthful o' Jam in North London, and the Aloha Afternoon Dance at The Kanaloa Club take some beating for atmosphere!
What do you love about teaching?
Seeing our lovely beginners on week 10 dancing like they never thought was possible for them!
What is most important to you as swing jive teacher, when teaching your classes?
Seeing the students feel comfortable and enjoying the course experience. We must ensure it's fun for them!
In a short paragraph how would you sum yourself up as a vintage dance lover?
I'll leave this to others I think! Answers on a postcard please!
