Dancing in the Streets a Success! / by Granville Street

Last Sunday Jungle Swing hosted the first in a series of Sunday Afternoon Summer dance events called Dancing in the Streets. About 200 Lindyhoppers and spectators enjoyed the DJed Big Band music under the clear Vancouver Summer skies while a soft breeze blew north on the block.

Dancers raved about the opportunity to dance in a new venue, and spectators gushed about the vibrancy the dancing and music brought to the street. More than a dozen hand held cameras could be seen filming at any time, so look to youtube for videos to pop up!

Here is a video of Lindy Flashmob that happened earlier in the year at the same location.

This week the Dancing series will be hosted by Salsavancouver.net newlywed super salsa team Stephen and Jennifer Dancey.

Veterans, Stephen and Jennifer have many years under their belt as producers of community dance events having hosted the wildly popular Sunday Afternoon Salsa at Robson Square, which has been on hiatus this year due to construction.

Reminder that this Sunday, a 30 min class will begin at 2:00 with social dancing from 2:30-6pm. Bring water and a towel!
