Red Hot Lindy Hop Review - Solid!

I just wanted to thank Jaredan, Heather and the other folks at the Red Hot Lindy Hop gathering last night for a great time. It was the first opportunity I had to visit the weekly RHLH event at the Rumba Room. The fact that MA and I are (at best) extremely novice dancers did not stop us from giving it a try; nor did it prevent others from taking each of us for a spin. Our apologies to all the injured toes on those with more educated feet. A nice mix of music kept the mood very lively. We will definitely be back, and I suggest any Swing Shift Shuffle fans check it out. Thanks again!
