History of Caucasian Dancing

February 10, 2014

The great jazz dancers Al Minns & Leon James often worked with the historian Marshall Stearns to educate people on the history of jazz dance.

A few years ago I had the idea to do a similar educational clip about the history of Caucasian social dancing, a topic very few scholars would be interested in. Luckily, my film-making partner Nick Williams and I found some: good friends Javier Johnson and Shani B helped us explore the overlooked history of one culture’s contribution to social dancing.

    You people are so media saavy. You should convert Nick Williams’ lindy workout routine that he does at Atomic into a sweating to the oldies DVD and market it.
