Swing Dancing on Channel 933!
Author: mel :: Posted: Wed Jan 11, 2006 2:43 pm GMT
Hey all! AJ's Playhouse on Channel 933 is doing a spoof of Dancing with the Stars. They call it "Dancing with the Playhouse". AJ, Jesse, Hula and Nina are all competing against each other...one being voted off each week...until the winner is revealed. The first week they chose SWING!!

Meeshi and I taught them a 1 minute routine, and they only had one hour to learn it. Then, they took turns recording it secretly so they couldn't see each other's performances. All four videos will be online at http://playhouse.clearchannel.com/main.html between 8:00am - 9:00am on Thursday morning so viewers can vote for their favorite.

Please listen to 93.3 an check out the website to vote for your favorite tomorrow morning at 8am! This is a great opportunity for Swing to get into the mainstream again. They are also going to advertise the "Living Legends of Swing" workshop weekend!

Mel

ps...Swingorama's own Liz O'Grady will be teaching them Ballroom next week, so stay posted for more!
