and it was a success indeed, judging by the flock of mails to the mailinglist. See come extracts below...
Soon another one - not officially organized by the Swingbunch, but arranged by word of mouth and mostly, dancers' enthusiasm!
We danced from 5 to 10pm; we danced to a (sometimes scarily large) crowd of pleased onlookers; we danced on cobbled concrete ground; some of us danced barefoot; we relaxed; we soaked up the sun. We basically had a fantastic time! We weren't stopped or chased away by the police (who happened to walk by 3 times - yes, we counted) so I'm thinking - We've found another lovely Summer lindy dance site! Yeah!!
We also achieved what we'd always hoped - to spread the word of all things
swing and lindy to the world at large. Or at least to the people walking
by on Gabriel's Wharf. Quite a few of these onlookers stopped for a good
few hours just to enjoy the sun, the music, the dancing and the happy
atmosphere. We were definitely basking in a good place. A few
My verdict - we'll definitely be going back to the Bank again and, given that we danced on concrete (cobbled, no less) for 5 hours without much complaints, I'm thinking that bombing Cambridge won't be a problem!!
Thanks to all who organised "B the B" and here's to the next bombing! I can't wait!
Love, Sian xx
Last night was gorgeous - felt very happy to be in london town with the
sun going down and the crazy 1,2,3 babies man - who was he, cos he could
groove?! it is a perfect venue....
I couldn't agree more - it was brilliant!
It was a fantastic evening - when are we going back?
But Bomb the Bank ... what can I say .... FanTAStic!!! Thanks guys! Gorgeous
location, lovely weather, fantastic dances, lovely people ... I fell into
bed at 1am a very happy dancer ... despite the exceptionally sore feet
from all the dancing I did this weekend ...[ you're a light weight Martin!
;-) ] One, Two, Three Babies man! What can I say? I think you *had* to
be there! Saying that, I have a sneaky suspicion that he is a regular
feature down there!
