Four weeks after ULHS and still no word on official results. Even ALHC put up their results a week after it ended.
I still have unofficial results in my “ULHS 2009 Round Up” post, and at least lots of people are talking about ULHS online. I also just added another blog to that post from another attendee. <Me>
Just in case ALHC was feeling neglected, someone who attended that event finally posted a review to prove that someone went. The omnipresent and always opinionated Allen Hall chimes in with the latest installment of his <News and Views>
Allen and Rudy have been traveling around the country attending big events and weekly dance venues since forever and a day ago. For those of you not already familiar with them, check out this nice write up of their story. <Allen & Rudy 4 Eva>
Many moons ago they passed through DC and reviewed a dance I dj’d over at CCB. <Ego Stroke>
Forwarded to me by Ann Mony, Jojo Jackson has a ton of historical videos online linked from her website. <Jojo Jackson>
A little more recent, but just as relevant. A blogger recounts the 90’s neo swing revival in the media. <Children of the 90’s>
Still on the Hellzapoppin’ tip, another blogger recounts to story of the star of the other Lindy Hop scene in that movie. No not Dean Collins, but Martha Raye. <Armchair Actorvist>
But you want to know about Dean Collins anyway? Peter Loggins gives the 411 and then some on one of his new blogs. <The Jassdancer>
One of his new blogs? Yep, he has two that I know of. Follow this link to find out the deal behind the term “Bal-swing.” <Balboa Dancer>
He still runs http://www.DanceHistory.org. The nice thing about that site is that other people can contribute what they find. Someone just posted a transcription of hand written notes by the director of “The Spirit Moves,” Mura Dehn, found in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. <Dance History>
The Philadelphia Folklore Project has put up an amazing online exhibit of tap dancers from the Swing Era. <Philadelphia Folklore Project>
You too can use history without paying for it. Check out public domain swing images and videos available through <Getty Images>
And just to remind you that there are other video sites out there that aren’t called YouTube, here’s a very friendly history lesson from our our English speaking Quebecois friends.
Finally, vintage footage of David Bowie going old school.
