Weekly Video Highlights: SEAjam 2010

I realize I’m a bit behind on these things, but I’ve been busy and there’s a lot of Lindy Awesome out there. This week’s videos come all the way from Singapore at SEAJam 2010 run by Sing Lim.  Sing Lim is a dancer that I think more people need to know about.  Ask people like Nina and Naomi and they’ll go on and on about her. In my opinion, she ranks up there with modern Lindy Hop legends like Steven Mitchell, Sylvia Sykes, and Ryan Francois. In fact here’s a video of her performing with Ryan in 1993.

She may look like a lot of dancers, but it’s actually more accurate to say that many dancers look like her since she originated a lot of stylings that get abused today. It’s a shame more people don’t know about her, but she’s done a great job of raising her own family and building up the Singapore Lindy scene that can support a big event that can bring in instructors from all over the world.
