I just came across this video of the Quest Crew doing a performance to a Caravan Palace song on SYTYCD! How exciting is that? Dax and I also had thrown in a Caravan Palace song when choosing what to do for Live to Dance.

Here is a fascinating video on the costume designers behind the NYC ballet company. While, it is not the Lindy Hop I’m sure fellow dancers can appreciate this.
If you enjoyed this, here is a video about their point shoes!
Lastly, here is an interesting video about what is going through a dancer’s mind while they are rehearsing. Funny thing is Dax and I have done a similar thing on a lesson of ours on RhythmJuice.com. We film ourselves and do a voice over to explain what is going through our minds while we are practicing.
