It's true! Doug and I were superstars on Friday night.

For the past few months we've been taking a Performance Lindy Hop (aka Superstar Lindy) class from Naptown Stomp. Our instructors (the fabulously great Kathy and Aaron) choreographed and taught a very snazzy lindy routine to 8 dance couples. Last Friday night at the Fountain Square Theater swing dance, we managed to not fall on our faces as we performed during one of the intermissions.

This class ended up being a great idea. I think it was the first time I ever took a dance class that really required a lot of rehearsal outside the class to make it a success. We definitely learned some really slick moves--we haven't quite figured out how to fit into our regular dancing, but we will soon! It was a great way to really get to know the other Naptown Stompers a whole lot better. Our only complaint was that the ultimate goal of the class, the performance, was only 2 minutes long! We want to do it again!!

Many, many thanks need to go to Kathy and Aaron for the tons of time they put into making this a success. They did a great job with us. And to Sandy for giving us a place to rehearse on the weekend. And to all the Superstars for working so hard! And one final thanks to Debra, for taking the video of the performance for me!

One of my favorite comments from a friend afterward the performance was "Fiona, you looked like you were having a great time, but Doug looked like he was concentrating very hard." :)

They clearly put the talent front and center!!! Sorry I couldn't be there to see it in person, but it's a fabulous video!
