Dancing at Boston Swing Central

on Feb. 3, 2012; the participants were the Grand Street Stompers, directed by Gordon Au, with expressive singing by Tamar Korn. Performers include Dennis Lichtman, Nick Russo and Genevieve Rose.

And for some faux-astronomy but real romance, here’s Let’s Pretend That There’s a Moon (first crooned by that master of the erogenous zones, Thomas Waller):

Both of these videos were posted by dirtywaterlindy on YouTube — to Ms. or Mr. Lindy, we give thanks — also to Tamar, Gordon, Dennis, Nick, and Genevieve, and the organizers of Boston Swing Central.
