In our second live show, we sit down with a few guests to share stories, insights, and laughs. We first invited the Event Co-Directors of Rose City Swing, Babak Shakeri and Trudy Thatcher, to tell us about their experience creating, running, and developing the event. Then we were joined by the inimitable Ben Morris to discuss his start in dance, how his background in lindy hop influenced his dancing, and how he thinks about creating a dance. Afterwards, audience members asked questions about leading and following, how to approach a private lesson, and the story of The Super Jews of Swing. As with any late night conversation, things got a little silly, a little off-topic, and a little raucous, but good times were had by all.
