NEW HOME FOR THE POLE-HOLICS

"Sadly the studio had closed, but we are keeping the dance alive at the Jitterbugs Swingapore" so says thebodytalks website.

It was my first time visiting the 3rd floor of Millennia Walk. And boy, was I surprised how bursting with energy Jitterbugs Swingapore was last evening with its 3 mega studios filled to the brim with dance students. Dominating the place were many hip-hoppy teens and the early 20something in cargo pants & streetwear. I felt really out of place when I set foot inside. Thankfully no one came up to me to ask which child I'd come to fetch.

We are given 2 nights of practice sessions a week, that's so decent of them. Last night was our first and we spent 3 solid hours practising intensively, trying to get use to our new home. Believe me, it wasn't difficult, I'm already in love with the studios and the poles.

Thoroughly enjoyed the sessions after a hiatus of several weeks since thebodytalks decided to close. Just as well I have to practice real hard as I need to really fit to fulfill some requests to perform, including a birthday bash & NUS Faculty of Arts & Social Science Alumni Charity Event.

Tonight we were completely drained, so only managed a few couple tricks like this with Linna

Oh, btw, THE ACCOUNT has been SUSPENDED. Thanks!
