West Coast Wednesday - Benji Schwimmer & Torri Smith, US Open Swing Dance Championships (2010)
So this happened over the previous weekend. Showcase-style choreography has always been something that I’ve wondered about: the effort of putting together a routine must be a strenuous as memorizing each portion of it. Of course, some parts flow more smoothly than others—it makes sense that this next bit in the choreography is coming up, etc. I’ve so far only participated in two choreographed routines, though, and never competed with one.
This is the 1st place WCS routine from the competition. Pretty amazing stuff to watch, and … I have to say it again. It reminds me so much of watching a ballroom performance.
