Lindy hop is evolving rapidly. These two dancers have captured my attention this past weekend in a way that demands respect. Watching them delicately embellish this song was refreshing. I’ve had the pleasure of dancing with Grace Durant for years and have also been a giant fan of Nathan Bugh’s contribution to jazz for over a decade. They dance so differently apart, and together highlighted the beauty in being different. This Jack and Jill challenges many compatibility assumptions we often project on couples who dance on the other side of the style spectrum. They crafted a moment for matures dancers, for “grown folks.” This Jack and Jill is sophisticated, playful, and full of syncopated moments mirroring the songs highlights. Big shout out to Nathan Bugh and Grace Durant for delivering a special moment! Let them know what you enjoyed most in the comment section!
