Here is an interesting initiative I stumbled upon over on greatdance.com for all of us dance bloggers.
Ferdy on Films, etc. is proud to host the Invitation to the Dance Movie Blogathon, May 4 through May 10. The last day of the blogathon just happens to be the birthday of one of the greatest dancers ever to grace the silver screen–Fred Astaire. Contributions on that date that discuss Astaire are particularly welcome. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Link to this page before the event and to Ferdy on Films, etc. during the week of the blogathon.
So, during that week I will showcase some of lindy hop and jazz dances most revered clips from film and movies.
Were it not for Hollywood there would be no Hellzapoppin’, no Day at the Races, and no Stormy Weather. What a sad world it would be.
Are you going to particpate in the Dance Movie Blogathon or have any suggestions for vintage jazz or lindy hop clips that should be included? Let me know and comment.
