Specifically, swing dancing.
I started around January 2010, so not that long ago. And I am now getting ready to enter my third year of college as co-president of my school's swing dance club.
In my normal life I usually dance at LEAST once if not twice or three times a week. And now I have not danced in a month. I am ready to explode. And if and when I do, it may or may not be pretty.
It hit me when I was in Nanjing (for the second time with a larger group of people, story coming soon), when we were waiting for the bus and I was attempting to play music to distract everyone. I came upon Frankie Manning's T'aint What You Do and the urge to get up and dance was undeniable. I ended up shuffling out a rendition of the shim sham (click for video demo) and then I was sorely wishing for any of my companions to know lindy hop (demo).
Now, it's like I have an itch I can't scratch. I could go days without listening to my music, but now I can't stop. I need to dance. To music that I know, that's not techno club-beat music. A partner who can lead and respond.
I found a place in Shanghai. I need to go. Next chance, definitely...
I need to scratch this itch!
