The Austin, TX based Lindy Hop event has in five year turned into on of the best places to go and get your dance on. Whether it be to dance to some amazing live music with your favorite fellow dancers, compete in one of the 11 Lindy Hop contests, or to simply “geek out” on some sing-a-longs. The Lone Star Championships is a fun and safe environment to just be who you are and enjoy that with other like minded people.

This year I was honored to again be invited to teach, judge, and compete in some of the contest of the weekend. Here are some of the videos from the weekend, enjoy!

This is the Invitational Strictly Lindy Hop contest. I was fortunate to dance with the lovely and talented Gaby Cook. We are second in the line up…

Next is the Invitational Jack & Jill Lindy Hop contest. Here the leads draw the name of a follow and are judged on how well they are able to dance together. I drew the amazing Kelly Arsenault.

But oh no, the fun doesn’t end there, then we had to choose a song at random from the eras of the 70s, 80s, and 90s… We choose the 90s, here was the resulting dance!
