Lindyworks is Toronto Lindy Hop’s annual weekend of workshop wonderfulness! It’s all about Lindy Hop and Vernacular Jazz dancing. Having only begun my own Swing Dancing love affair (began this past spring, click here for that)…. this was my first workshop ever! I was uber nervous about being surrounded by actual dancers for an entire weekend (three days) of solid dance instruction to challenge and inspire dancers during the day and to practice your newly acquired skills at evening parties that feature the best LIVE swing bands.
Moi… in sweaty-workshop-mode … learning new moves and improving on technique
Not quite sure what I’m doing looking at the ceiling … perhaps that’s my own ‘personal styling’ of a dance move…
Love this one…. “I saw you…with her… Wag our finger in unison”... STOMP OFF! 🙂
Thank goodness for KHPhotograpy for capturing these moments – all I had to show at the end of workshop day 1, was the following Facebook post:
FOLLOWED BY PERFORMANCES BY MICHAEL & EVITA:
I just love the look on everyones faces! Still can’t believe I got to social dance with Michael (Mic) Jagger – ha! He’s oh-so-very-fantastically! **swoon**
Lindy Hop – the most fun you can have with your clothes on. 😉

Now that you’ve seen “What I Did”….let’s talk about “What I Wore” to the Saturday Night Lindyworks Dance at The Douvercourt House – hosted by Toronto Lindy Hop.
This lovely dress was on sale at the time I was looking for my the perfect dress for Tiki Lani Lanai with TVS.
If you look really closely at the pattern of this dress, you’ll notice they are little chat bubbles/text bubbles.
Plus giant buttons and a lil’ collar…..Too cute, right?
How I Got The Look: Dress from Cherry Velvet Plus; Belt & Shoes from Winners -these were not wore whilst dancing 😉 – and the 50s vintage sweater was thrifted from Goodwill.
