my favorite place to dance....
i'm not sure how to answer this question - my favorite place to dance now? or like EVAR!? i hate to sound wishy washy but i really do have many favorite places to dance.
currently, i have two favorite places to dance in chicago -
1) swing dancing at fizz (full disclosure, i work there part time) - i feel the most at home here... almost too homey though... i often find i chatty face here more than dance sometimes. :)
2) black rock - i enjoy going to black rock because it's a lovely space, very comfortable and very familiar in that old chicago bar sense... the crew of staff & regulars are really laid back and casual. i feel a certain amount of duty/responsibility at swing at fizz because i'm also staff. so, it's nice to have black rock to run to if i didn't get my dance on at fizz....
in san francisco, my favorite place to dance has always been -
1) lindy in the park - it's moved from it's original location at the bandshell (see below), but it's still hella fun. :)
however, when they were still open - The Doghouse - where i also taught with chad kubo and jason christodoulou.
and spencer's joint at dna lounge - we're also considered my homes away from home.
last but certainly not least... the casino ballroom on catalina island.... where all kinds of magic happen... not to mention - OLAFS!!!
which reminds me... have you pinned your "best spot to lindy hop in the US" yet?
