You know you’re a swing dancer when…

"UGH I CAN’T WAIT TO DANCE AGAIN"
"You literally just left the venue"
"EXACTLY"

Anonymous said: I am going to my first swing dance! A place in a city near me has free classes on Sunday and I can go! But I am scared I will be terrible and I don't know what to wear! Any suggestions on clothes and first time jitters?

swinginforbreakfast:

Yay! That makes me really happy! 

So. All the advices now.

First off, don’t be scared! I’m going to say something that will hopefully make you feel better. You should not be scared that you will be terrible. I can pretty much guarantee that you will be terrible.

BUT you will not be anywhere near as terrible as you think you are. Everybody has to start somewhere, and for most people, you start at the bottom. And that’s okay. Everyone who is really good at dancing now was, at one point, just as bad as you are. They understand, so don’t apologize. Just put in as much work as you can, and dance as often as you can. The only thing separating you from being a fabulous dancer is practice. And practice takes time. Don’t try and be a pro on your first night, but do always try to improve. And also, don’t be afraid to be silly. There is nothing wrong with dancing like they do in Holy Musical B@man.

The dancing community is one of the nicest communities that I know of. So jump in! It’ll be great! They will probably have some kind of after dance thing (a trip to Denny’s or Steak’n’Shake or something). If you are able, go to that. It’s a great way to get to know other dancers off the floor. And getting to know other dancers is a great way to get people to teach you things and practice things. So make friends!

Now. For the clothes portion. 

First of all. Dress comfortably, and wear clothes that do not restrict your range of motion. This is an athletic dance, so we don’t want to rip your favorite clothes by over extending or something. (Also, if you decide to wear a dress/skirt, make sure to put on a pair of shorts underneath so that people don’t see your underwear.)

For shoes, while anything will work, generally something with a suede or leather bottom is preferred. You can also take a pair of tennis shoes and put moleskin on the bottom. 

After that, just dress to be fabulous. Because you are. So get out there and do the thing!

I really like this perspective on being terrible at first.

I was in a lousy mood so I drew something silly and self-indulgent and now I feel a tiny bit better. Small victories.

Sorry for up and vanishing again — I had a minor brain crash and needed to reboot. Hope you’re all having a wonderful day/night. 

dumblebe this is amazing.

Shake Señora was probably on the background. You can’t blame him.

it’s gonna be may

grimalkina:

As someone who didn’t go to high school nor access popular culture during the 90s/early 2000s, I don’t get any of the jokes and I am SO tired of the nostalgia.

FWIW I don’t have the first clue what this “it’s gonna be may” thing is either.
