Some of us are gonna go dancing at WTD on August 2nd. Why don’t you join us? Live music there takes place at 9 till 11pm.
There are a lot of inquiries like where they can go dancing in Tokyo. Tokyo Swing Dance Society has regular socials with recorded music weekly in general as written on the TSDS calendar. BTW, do you know What The Dickens, a music night club at Ebisu that has live music almost every day? We’ve never seen pure swing bands there, but they play Bluse, Country, Contemporary Fork, Soul, R&B. Funk, Rock, Jazz Manouche and Pop. Although it might be difficult to dance to those tunes a little for beginner lindyhoppers, there are still some possibilities of dancing for experienced swing dancers. No music charge at WTD. 9-11pm is a core dance time.
There is a part about ‘Ladies’ Twist’ at the book Frankie Manning, Ambassador of Lindy Hop.written by Frankie Manning and Cynthia R. Millman. That’s an English version of course. And there is the Japanese edition too, but there are lots of translation errors in it.
Since this is one of important parts of the book, I made its abstract in Japanese below.
