Congratulations to Kate Hedin and Bobby White for representing DC (and the rest of the Washington Metroolitan area) by winning the StrictlyLindy Hop and Cabaret Divisions, and from stopping the red menace known as Canada from sweeping the proceedings.

By the way, those aren’t mistakes on the website.  The Cats’ Corner (Champions Strictly Lindy Hop) and Solo Charleston contests were canceled.  The Blues division was combined with Cabaret.   The Classic and Showcase divisions were also combined for the second year in a row.

This is also the second year with no American Showcase despite advertising qualifying rounds in six cities this year. I know only of two that took place: one in San Francisco and the other at Lindy on the Rocks in Denver.

There’s  few videos of this year’s ALHC online if you want to do a search, but they have at least finally started putting up videos from past ALHC’s online.

For those of you still wondering, no official results for The Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown are up yet.

International Lindy Hop Championships results are still online and we’ll soon be putting up high quality videos of the competitions.  Keep an eye out for that.  Alternatively, you can just check in here, and I’ll let you know.

And just to show that I’m not leaving anyone out, Camp Hollywood results are available on their website in probably the best presentation online.
