Random Videos: Lindy on The Rocks 2009

I’m actually working on some more related ILHC posts, but my job seems to be getting in the way.  In the mean time I’ll go back to an event that happened about a month ago.  Lindy on the Rocks is held in Denver, Colorado.

I’ve already posted a video of this performance, but they just put up some super high quality HD videos up and this one blew me away as much as it did the first time I saw it.  Amazing what a well placed color adjustment will do for your viewing pleasure.

I also wanted to put this up because it features Nina Gilkenson who came in first place in the Invitational Jack & Jill with Peter Strom.

It’s funny that the International Lindy Hop Championships is quickly becoming one of the premiere events of the Lindy Hop scene, but probably the most influential dancer around doesn’t get to compete in it because she’s too busy running it.  So I decided let her shine here along with one of the ILHC MC’s, Peter.

Also note that the “Single Ladies” routine is dedicated to Nina’s ILHC partner, Tena Morales for her birthday.  Tena looks great for just turning 25.

You can see more Lindy on the Rocks HQ videos including the rest of the Invitational J & J, their Strictly Lindy Hop competition, and a bunch of performances on the event website or under YouTuber <YoungKimStudio.>

    I think ILHC’s popularity is directly related to the abilities and skills of its organizers — nothing amusing or weird about it, dare I say .. expected.
