Camp Jitterbug Flyer

And what a pretty face! Oh dear me!

Anyway, very proud to be on this year’s Camp Jitterbug flyer and on the website header:

The photo on the flyer was taken during my tribute act to Josephine Baker in last year’s Jump Session show. Josephine is, of course, one of my all-time greatest inspirations. The act starts with a jungle-style dance in recreation of her part in Princess Tam Tam, and ends with a tribute to her famous banana-skirt dance. Ahh, Josephine…

Camp Jitterbug & the Jump Session Show 2010
Memorial Day weekend
May 28-31st 2010
Seattle, USA

And this year the Jump Session show will feature all six Killer Dillers! Myself and Juan, Kevin St Laurent & Jo Hoffberg, and Evita Arce & Nathan Bugh will all be attending Camp Jitterbug, to show off our new routines in the Jump Session Show, jump in the competitions (like last year’s ILHC, it’ll be The Killer Dillers vs Everyone Else in the Charleston battle – be there or be square!), and we’ll also be teaching some classes!  Camp Jitterbug is without a doubt one of the greatest events on the international Lindy Hop calendar, so if you can make it I’d really recommend it!

Here is the trailer from last year’s Jump Session show. If this doesn’t make you want to be there, I don’t know what would:
