A Throw Back Thursday – Mikey & Cassandra 2000

November 17, 2014 | Filed Under: Videos | Tagged:

So this is me and my first dance partner, Cassandra Joy, dancing at the Desert Dance Camp in Las Vegas back in 2000. Yes I had blonde hair, yes my pants were slowly eating me, and yes she is wear a dress modeled after Jean Veloz’s memorable scene in Swing Fever. This entire dance was all improv and we only planned the beginning. We had just won the US OPEN SWING DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS the prior year and were asked to perform at the event in front of the whole camp, including special guests, Norma Miller and Maxie Dorf. This was amazingly nerve racking and vividly remember the entire performance!
