Paula & Julia tag-teamed for this solo number to the tune of “We Cats Will Sing for You” by The Cats & the Fiddle earlier this month. What makes this performance so delightful is the effortless aesthetic of their dancing and the mirror image effect of their choreography. Note how both bring a bubbly energy to the performance and how in control of their bodies they are at as they scoot, slide and step across the floor. This pair of soloists debuted their choreo at Big South, a top-notch swing dance studio in Madrid, Spain, which offers classes in several vintage dance styles including solo Jazz. The studio website encourages dancers to take solo classes to improve all areas of dancing, and because it’s fun! Solo is a great way to build awareness of your body, how you move, and how to incorporate flair into partnered dancing. Challenge time: solo at least once at your next social dance.
