West Coast Swing

 

This couple thrilled us with some slick impromptu steppin'

This video of the West Coast Swing is even more impressive,

because he had picked her as a partner out of a hat,

and he had no idea what music she had chosen...

the dancing starts about a minute in...

Fine shots, Elizabeth. It can be great entertainment to witness a spontaneous dance.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray! I completely agree!
two excellent shots but i think i prefer the moment captured in the first one, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ayush! I know what you mean, Ayush!

I love the pose in the main image. It sounds like they were very accomplished dancers. Did you and Frank show them how to dance (does Frank dance? I'm useless!).

The dancing in the video is superb.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Alan! They were quite good... there's always something going on in Flagstaff... and one is that any night of the week, you can find free dance lessons at various clubs and restaurants around town - one of these is swing dancing. Frank doesn't dance... but I do!

If one is keen on dancing then it should be encouraged as a way of keeping fit.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely! It's great for balance, coordination and brain health as well!

wonderful action photos - I could image you and Frank dancing in this way. Reading your comment to comment I thought of Paris where are some places for free dancing every night.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Philine! I would love to dance with Frank like this... but it's not his thing! I dance with my girlfriends! smile

I loved the video - when you are good, you are good. Good shots as well.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they amazing! Thank you, Louis!
Two great shots Elizabeth and I love the video, these kids are talented to be able to do this spontaneously.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian! I love to watch good dancers... having been a dancer myself - I know a little of what it takes!
