Since it was my first exchange i didnt know what to expect and i also had not prepared my poor legs and feet for the pain that was about to come! But it was incredible!! i attended workshops with teachers from all over the world and danced with leads i hadnt had the gumption to ask for a dance yet, i lived off a diet of raisin toast and coffee and danced until 3:00am in my pyjamas at the Pyjama Jam! My hair and wardrobe had a fair workout and the weekend ended with lots of memories and a few injuries (which means i had a hell of a time)

I know i talk about my dancing quite alot, but it definitely is a very big part of my life i almost live and breathe it! Not only do i love the dance but its the community that keep me excited to attend the next social or event...i havent met a group of people so welcoming and full of life...why wouldnt you want to surround yourself with such people!

I thought i would upload a few dancing photos taken by the incredible Mark Rotondella, im wearing two of my all time fav 50's dresses and they survived to tell the tale too!

Happy Wednesday!

You look fantastic! As a swing dancer, I absolutely love reading your blogs even just for the glimpses of the dance scene on the other side of the globe, and the gorgeous vintage frocks are just icing on the cake. :)

Echoing the comments above ... you look fab AND so happy!
Where are these events held in Perth? I must have left before they really caught hold and became popular but I may be back soon and would like to come and watch - maybe even participate.
