I'm excited to report that from August 24-26 I will be in Washington DC to host a live internet broadcast of the International Lindy Hop Championships, along with my awesome co-hosts Nicole Zuckerman and Manu Smith. This is the first time an international swing competition of this kind has been live broadcast in this way. So we are super honored to be invited by the organizers of ILHC to produce this with them.
This is a natural step in the impressive growth of the international lindy hop movement from small pockets of dancers in a handful of countries to tens of thousands of lindy enthusiasts from all over the world. The Herrang Swing Dance Camp in Sweden boasts attendance from people from more than 50 countries, from Estonia to South Africa.
While several hundred people will travel to ILHC to compete and participate, there are thousands more that wish they could be there. So hopefully our internet broadcast will help them to feel the excitement of the competitions, pitting the best dancers from around the world against each other in a variety of divisions and formats.
