It’s always amazing to me how fast a year goes by, and it always seems to go faster when you’re having fun. I spent this year’s end at the ever wonderful big event that Cincyhop hosts each New Years Eve, and I couldn’t imagine a better way to ring in the New Year.
My fascination with swing dance first started in 2016, when I was working at a dairy in the middle of Wisconsin. A coworker found out about my love of big band music, and convinced me to go with her to a place called the Wabasha Street Caves in St. Paul, Minnesota. I went and soaked up the sounds, the atmosphere, and most of all, the energy. The entire environment was warm, engaging, and extremely friendly.
