ILHC 2010 Round Up

Yeah, I’m busy again.  I have a bunch of ideas for posts, but not a lot of time.  Luckily the Lindy blogosphere has plenty of reactions.  Online reaction on Facebook to the event itself has been crazy good.  Thanks to everyone once again for attending, competing and working the best damn event around.

First and foremost, results are now available on the ILHC website complete with score sheets in formats. 


Although Patrick Szmidt has been putting up videos and scoresheets up on his website even as the event was still going on.  When I spoke to him on Monday afternoon after it ended, he estimated that all the videos online at that point had garnered about 20,000 views already.

Lindy Library and Floridave also have videos up on YouTube.  LindyLibrary has also conveniently added complete videos of all the Lindy Hop Jack & Jills so you can see each of those divisions in one shot.  Floridave has compiled all of his videos onto one page for easy reference and viewing on his blog.


Check out the great shots by these super talented photographers.
