285/365 Break out the dancing shoes

I'm going to start January 2010 with a new challenge:  learning to dance the Lindy Hop.

It's a variation of swing dancing that started in the 1920s and 1930s. I've never tried it before, but I'm going to jump in with both feet and try a Level 2 class. I have plenty of dance experience, including swing, so I'm feeling confident about my ability to pick it up.

Curious about what a really advanced Lindy looks like? Check this out:

Oh. My. Goodness.

I've got new shoes (the picture above) and a new year. Let's give this a go!
