Dave and I have been learning to swing dance for a few weeks, and on Sunday we went to our first dance. It was ace fun, we danced quite a few songs despite the fact that we know hardly any steps yet.
This is what I wore. I had been wondering what people would wear to it, and we asked the teachers and they told us not bother getting dressed up, it being a Sunday and all. I decided to go for this as a compromise, it’s ‘normal’ clothes, but its also got enough vintageness in it to be fitting for a swing dance. And just as well that i did, because the teachers arrived in full evening wear!
I’ve been getting quite obsessed with swing dancing clothes, so expect better things for next time!
