Swing dance in Durham | Duke Gardens

What a fun fun fun night it was when I photographed Swing dance in Durham! Swing is definitely an entertaining dance. It allows more freedom of movement, and it is pretty fast, so you better keep up with your partner. I was pleasantly surprised how many people in the class knew what they were doing. Not to mention that again I was jealous I was not the one dancing the night away! But I had lots of fun photographing the swing dance, and I did get to dance once or twice! I did well although I stepped on a foot or two 🙂 A few couples were so amazingly wonderful that I couldn’t help but stare at them alongside other participants. With total envy of course! I guess next time I simply have to take the class myself, but who will take pictures then? I was glad I had a chance to photograph the event. I met some amazing people including the instructor Richard Badu. Incredibly funny fella who made the whole experience so much more pleasurable. He made everybody feel at ease and comfortable no matter how inexperienced they were with swing dance in Durham. He was one of the guys who had their feet stepped on by me. Thank goodness for his good nature and forgiveness! So if you ever want to learn how to dance, head to https://gardens.duke.edu/ and click on events. They offer several different dance classes throughout the year.film The Discovery download
