My Story:
I first got into swing dancing when I was in high school. At the time the swing revival was in full swing (no pun intended) and dances had more than 100 people in attendance (in Santa Fe which is a small town). I had so much fun the first time I went that I continued going every other week.

When I got into college I moved from jitterbug to lindy hop and balboa. I was the vice president of and helped form the UNM Jitterbugs Anonymous swing club. I am proud to say the club is now in its 7th year and still going strong!

I still dance to this day and see no reason to ever stop.

The pun is most definitely intended.
