"Everyone gets the jitters and goes bug."
I'm linking here a post from Swungover. The Definition of the Jitterbug. Language is cool.
We've been working on mechanics a bit lately, especially since we've had an upsurge in new students. Last week we did a class in balance, counterbalance and suspension. The week before that we did a class in movement and connection. This week we're going to challenge our leading and following skills.
Oh, and it's the holiday party. Ugly sweater contest, double-bug contest, and other stuff too!
On other folks who would have the jitters, I'm reminded of the druggy subtext underneath this classic tune. Also, I'm reading the Man with the Golden Arm and just watched Requiem for a Dream, so the world is full of dark twists right now.
