Dirty Water Lindy Routine with Gordon Webster

Sometime in June, I had an idea to do a live Lindy performance at Boston’s first ever Dirty Water Lindy and Blues Exchange. I ran the idea by Shawn and Amanda from New School Swing, and then started by putting together a list of performers. We contacted Gordon Webster, a fantastic jazz musician slotted to play on Saturday night, and selected a fast and energetic tune called “Bill Bailey”. Nicole, Lee, and I split up the choreography duties and started rehearsals in early July. After a few months of rehearsals, we had a pretty badass routine. I am so proud of the end result!
