Screening and dance! @Ketelhuis, 12 July 2017 21.00.
Tonight at Ketelhuis, you can watch a lively documentary and afterwards, dance through the night.
Alive and Kicking is a feature-length documentary that takes an inside look into the culture of swing dancing and the characters who make it special. The film explores the culture surrounding Swing dance from the emergence of the Lindy Hop to the modern day international phenomenon. It follows the growth of Swing dance from its purely American roots as an art form, to countries all over the world. Alive and Kicking looks at the lives of the Swing dancers themselves to find their personal stories and why this dance fills them with joy.
After the movie, there is a free taster class Lindy Hop by Jacky and Emilija from 22:30 – 23:00 to get swinging! And after the class, you can continue dancing because there is DJ Mark to play some swing music for you.
