All Things Swing with Tom Paderna

In this week's episode, we sit down with our good friend Tom Paderna and talk about a wide range of topics. We discussed the origins of NASDE and how it's changed over time. We discussed WSDC and how it's impacted the scene. We chatted about Masters-level dancers and why they don't get the same kind of respect they used to. We touched upon the growing perceptions of entitlement in our scene and how that has eroded our sense of community. And we talked quite a bit about how to foster more cohesion within our community - and the value of doing so. Listen for a very real, very rich conversation with a very knowledgeable, very insightful guy.
