Swing Swag 

If you're reading this blog, the odds are pretty good you have someone who likes dancing on your gift list this holiday season.

There's a brand new line of dancer-designed shirts called Swing Swag you might want to check out. They do dance themed Christmas holiday dance shirts, graphic swing dance t-shirts, ballroom dance shirts, funny dance themed ones, dancing around the world, a kid's section, as well as a whole section of country and line dance shirts! Yee-haw!

Their dance shirts are pretty cool, unique, and well made. They fit pretty true to size, maybe slightly on the roomy side. I ordered a few with a coupon code and I love them. They arrived in a week. I already wore one Christmas shirt out dancing... and it's not even Thanksgiving yet kind of love them. Use coupon code 38STEP for 20% off a purchase of 2 or more at www.swingswag.etsy.com .

Dance it out: 2017 GRAMMY Nominee Song and Dance




Dancing to music I enjoy off the dance floor, I usually feel an extra level of connection. Based on that idea, here is a list of some dances I'd call if I were a DJ playing music from 2017 GRAMMY nominees. Please jump in on the comments if you have different dance suggestions for these songs.

Based on the list below, I'd sign up for west coast swing lessons, just sayin'.

Speaking of west coast swing, there's a huge west coast swing event happening this weekend in Baltimore called MadJam - check dancejamtv.com throughout the weekend if you want to check the live stream. There's another one called Boston Tea Party happening at the end of March, also expected to be streaming live online.
