MontrÃ©al, QC, Canada
Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain
One day, a friend that plays the trombone in a big band, invited me and some other friends to a concert to see him (without telling us it was a swing ball!). The ballroom was filled with vintage dressed people dancing Lindy hop, Charleston an Balboa. The Ballroom itself was quite old-fashioned-looking.
It was a love at first sight :D, I think before the end of the second song some of us was already on the dance floor copying steps from the dancers and planning on getting lessons.
Almost 10 years latter here I am! :D I am Lindy Hop!
