And now for something completely different

Having taken a few salsa and tango classes (years ago and never enough to be good), I've always had a soft spot in my heart for dancing. Regrettably, the Swing Dancing Gods have always been against me so every time I've tried to take swing dancing, I've gotten lost, been late, or in one memorable instance, discovered that the "swing dancing class" was actually a "country line dancing class" but called "swing" because the instructor thought no one would show up otherwise. The instructor was right.

While it takes years to be this good, you can see why I might find swing dancing appealing.

On the other hand, a revamped Gene Kelly looks pretty damned phenomenal.

Nothing, however, quite beats the legendary Al Minns and Leon James doing the Charleston. Unless it's Al Minns and Leon James doing the Charleston to hip-hop.
