Lindy Hoppers

Tonight we started rehearsing the swing number from the 1937 film"A Day at the Races" with our troupe. It was great fun to get that high speed Lindy Hop energy and recall our adventures interviewing Norma Miller, the last surviving dancer from that group. She's about 85 now and as dynamic as ever. Hopefully, we'll be able to perform for her when she's back at Stanford in July for the summer dance week.

The photo is from 1999, a few months after we met with Norma. It's the end of the dance and we're heading offstage in style.

I am so jealous of the dancing! That is one thing I miss doing so much. Gotta get back in shape!!!
