I got really into Swing dancing while I was in London. It was the perfect thing to do each evening to shake off the dust of the archives.
This week Swing Patrol's twice monthly social dance night hosted a live band. So Ian and I shined up our dance shoes for some Sydney Swing. We were in such a rush to get out the door (I am always in a rush to get out the door - how do I always run so late?) that we only took a couple of shots in the garden. But they give you the general idea!
It was a really great night. Ian proved to be a most wonderful dance partner (remembering steps we haven't practices in months!) and I also got to twirl around the dance floor with some new faces. I still find social dancing just a tiny bit terrifying, but each time I go, it gets a little easier.
