Jump Session Videos

Not very many things surprise me these days in relation to Lindy Hop, but I’m more than a little shocked to see Jump Session videos online now.  Many of them by the event promoter, Tonya Morris.  It’s surprising because the Jump Session Show was the last major hold out of must see Lindy Hop performances that wasn’t previously available for free online.

Between Tonya, Shesha Marvin, and The Killer Dillers’ YouTube pages, it looks like the whole show will be online soon.

I’ve been putting off a full event overview for awhile, but this gives me some motivation to get it done.  I didn’t go, but there’s a ton buzz from the Lindy blogosphere about the event.  I’ll try to put something together for next week.  In the meantime I’ll leave you this weekend with a couple videos from the show.

The Harlem Hot Shots

Kelly Arsenault & Mickey Fortanesce

The Northern Lights

This the biggest tease because it’s currently labeled Bethany Powell & Stefan Durham and  but it’s actually The Northern Lights.  That’s pretty good, but everyone I’ve talked to about the show raves about Stephan and Bethany’s new piece.  I hope to see that online soon.

    The venue it was in this year wanted a lot of money for the organizers to be able to sell a DVD. I think it had something to due with unions. long story short, its on youtube now

    what i was told (and i thought it was by tonya herself, but maybe i’m wrong) was that benaroya hall would not allow videotaping to be done, period. but again, maybe i have my story wrong.
