Struggle is real

Neil MItten DJs Tuesday @ The Cellar!

It's not easy being a dancer. People gawk in the dazzle of your celebrity, longing after your skills and joyous demeanor, wondering how you could ever complain. But being a dancer is a condition you live with 24/7. It never stops – and it gives no regard to time or place. The soundtrack at the coffee shop at 9:30 (a.m. or p.m.) lends itself to lindy hop. Your iPod skips to a song with a taste of syncopation and dismantles your straight-beat running rhythm. The home-brewed musician at the metro stop is actually good and you have to pull away before your solo jazz steps autopilot.

A consistent target for tempting beats and empty streets – every song a tantalizing invitation. And while the rest of the non-infected world may not get it, we're here for you in your compulsion to dance, because we're infected too.

You can always find a support group at the Jam Cellar on Tuesday nights (Lessons at 8 p.m. and dance at 9 p.m.). In the meantime, bring on the Tranky Doo at the metro stop. Break your run for a moment. Lead your friend in a swingout at the coffee shop. Hang in there and we'll see you soon.

Coming up:

Next Beginner Class: Charleston w. Jason & Caroline, begins April 14th.

Next Inter/Adv Class: Swingout Madness w. Jeff & David & Kelly & Caroline, Begins April 14th.

Next Glen Echo dance: TBA, May 2.
