Charleston Revue: video review of week 1

Here’s the video for the first week of Charleston Revue dance class in Montreal.

The song for Charleston Revue: 12th Street Rag by Fats Waller

 

The song we are using is called “12th Street Rag” by Fats Waller. Here’s what I found on Wikipedia.

Fats Waller (born Thomas Wright Waller on May 21, 1904, died December 15, 1943) was an American jazz pianist, organist, composer and comedic entertainer.

A skilled pianist — widely recognized as a master of stride piano — Waller was one of the most popular performers of his era, finding critical and commercial success in his homeland and in Europe. Waller was also a prolific songwriter, with many songs he wrote or co-wrote still known to modern audiences, such as « Honeysuckle Rose », « Ain’t Misbehavin' » and « Squeeze Me ».

You can find the song on the album Handful of Keys on Amazon.ca

Lindy Revue performance on October 19th 2007

Lindy Revue students performed « Look-A-There » at the Cat’s Corner Friday night dance on October 19th, 2007.

The dancers were: Eric Thul, Sandra Cha, Owen Hortop, France Landry, Ann Mony, Chris Gibb, Pierre Carignan, Amanda Fong, Marie Ndiaye, Rofida Kaboli, Putra « Angga » Manggala, Monika Turner, Gabriel Fillion, Jenifer Tram, Alain Wong and Caroline Langer. Dancers who couldn’t make it but were very much apart of the crew: Marc-André Bellefleur, Karrwright Lee and Tim Hooper.

Well done!

Lindy Revue = cours / course

Salut à tous!

Un petit rappel que Lindy Revue est d’abord et avant tout un cours, donc j’espère voir tout le monde jeudi prochain, même s’il y en a qui ne pourront pas participer au spectacle le lendemain. Ne manquez pas le cours le plus électrique de la session!

Ceci étant dit, je serai à la pratique dimanche, et Alain vous a envoyé un petit courriel avec le dernier vidéo et des notes sur quoi apporter au cours.

À très bientôt!
