A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…
It is a period of civil war. Rebel
spaceships, striking from a hidden base
in the back room, have won their first
victory against the evil Galactic Empire
of the Jam Cellar.
A young rebel by the name of Michael
Morrison Marcotte was homebrewing
lindy and blues. Spinning the sweet
sounds of Blossom Dearie against Big
Mama Thornton, Marcotte had launched
a Sunday event.
As the battle waged, the Rebel Spies manage
to steal valuable plans to the empire's ultimate
weapon, the perfect swing out, a move with
enough power to turn the head of any high class
Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Marcotte
was captured racing home aboard his ten-speed
bike, custodian to the stolen plans that could save
his people and restore frame to the galaxy.
Tonight, from Detention Bock AA-23,
Marcotte will bring you the best of the Lindy Hop.
This is the dance you were looking for.

The Big Apple series starts THIS week!
This Tuesday opens a four week course on the Big Apple, a popular dance from the 1930s which utilizes Lindy Hop stylings to create a piece of group choreography. Like the Shim Sham or the Tranky Doo, the Big Apple unites individual dancers with a shared knowledge of the choreography, allowing them to spontaneously perform this entertaining and energetic show dance. Thought to originate from the traditional ring shout, the Big Apple was being performed by various dance troupes across the country as early as 1936 and has maintained its popularity today. This compilation of Boogie Backs, Susie Q's, Jump Charleston and Fish Tails not only teaches you a useful group dance but individual phrases of applicable Lindy Hop styling that will change how you look at your dancing.
