We have some very exciting news to share with you! We have been offered and just accepted the role of the lead Lindy Hop couple in the Broadway show SWING! on Norwegian Cruise Line! It is phenomenal opportunity for us to be able to perform in a show of this caliber and to work with the original Broadway director/choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett. It is also a true honor to follow in the footsteps of Ryan Francois and Jenny Thomas who were the original Lindy Hop couple in the Broadway show, and Michael Jagger and Evita Arce who performed the role in the Japan tour! Though it is a phenomenal opportunity, and despite our excitement, it was a very tough decision to make, as we are going to miss our life in New York City–our regular classes, students, and home-based performances. We are going to be very sad to leave New York City so soon–Sunday, January 18–but we will return back to the swing of things again in Fall 2015 with our usual private lessons, weekly group classes, and monthly workshops.
That being said, we have some fun things in stock for you before we go, and we won’t leave you hanging while we’re away.
