Swing Dancin'.

I've been meaning to post about this for a while, and I'm just now getting to it.  But I wanted to share it. :)

I went to my first swing dance that was hosted by a local homeschool group back in April and learned basic steps there.  After that, a family friend did a swing lesson/dance for his graduation party!

So.
Much.
Fun.  :)

Swing dancing, in case you don't know, was popular during the 20's, 30's, and 40's.  It's just a really fun style of dance because the music is so upbeat and you're swinging around.  The energy's high and it's sort of carefree and keeps you moving.  :)

Enough talking.  On with the pictures (most taken by my mama).  :)

That's Trent, the graduate, in the middle with his mom, dad, and brother.  
Okay, Pinterest has given me this "thing" for white Christmas lights used in decorating.  And the dance room had them strung across the ceiling!  So pretty.  Loved it.  I enjoyed getting some bokeh shots.  ;)  By the way, this picture was the only one taken by me.  The rest were taken by my mama because I was in all the action.  :)


The whole crew, with Trent (the graduate) at the top of the line.


Dancing with the instructor--he was so good!  It was hard to keep up with him.  :)


And we couldn't leave the party without some party dances....the Macarena, YMCA, Cha Cha Slide, and Cupid Shuffle.  :)




See the guy in the orange shirt?  That's Matthew.  He was the life of the party!  :)
Luke was doing some sliding action.  ;)
Talking with friends

And so I'm hooked on swing dancing.  I'm starting a five-week progressive class tomorrow night with the same instructors that taught at this event.  I'm excited.  :D

Oh, and guys, I'm almost to 200 followers!  Thank you all so much for being faithful to me and my blog!  :)  I hope to have a giveaway once I reach the 200 mark.  :)

God bless you and have a great day!  :)
God bless,
Joy :)
